    Wow, Going to a wedding in the Cathedral, that would have be amazing! Like having a choice of Cheeses, they sound pretty interesting.

    Première communion à la cathédrale de Bourges! J?ai plusieurs fois visité cette belle ville qui est bien une ville de ?La France Profonde? et je penserai à vous quand j?irai au restaurant du Jardin Gourmand.

    Great tips and photos. I especially like your Local Customs tip and photo about the French people dancing in the park on a Sunday afternoon. How cool! Best from New Jersey, Bill

    Bonjour Jeannette, je suppose que vous parlez encore le Français. Merci d'être d'accord avec moi pour Venise. Je vois que Bourges fait la concurrence à Troyes avec ses maisons à colombages.

    We always think our home town or city is boring. Nice page on yours. Also, a most Happy Birthday to you, Jeannette. Have missed you lately.

    Reading your page about Bourges reminded me of my childhood. I like to visit these smaller towns, there's so much more to France than Paris.

    This does indeed look a charming French provincial town. I enjoyed my 'virtual visit' via your page - will have to find an excuse to made a real visit one day!
