  Windfarm between Paris and Tours
by tiabunna

Fondest memory: This photo was taken from the TGV, enroute to Tours, as we flashed through what appeared to be wheatfields. Coming from Australia, where ongoing droughts have left much of the country very brown, it was fascinating to see how insanely green was the French countryside.

Equally as interesting was to see the rows of wind generators, quietly generating electricity in their Quixotic way. I found myself wondering if these also had generated as much debate and discussion as happens in Australia whenever there is a proposal to erect a windfarm!
