Dijon

We had briefly visited Dijon before but wanted to see a bit more.


The 1st step was to visit Les Halles on market day.  Even 2 days after Christmas it was full of producers and buyers.

One thing Dijon has done for tourists is to create a tourist trail.  A series of brass owl plaques are set into the footpath and covers the main sites of the city.  The museum of fine arts is free and open every day - except Tuesday.  Maybe next time.

We have seen plenty of ice skating rinks in the middle of town, but the kiddies ski circuit was a new one on us.

We briefly stopped in the village of Nuit St Georges where some bottles of wine were purchased.  When we have been out driving around the region dotted around the vineyards have been workers burning the vine prunings in mobile brazier wheel barrows.  Cold looking work.

This was a day of fog and coming home about 4:30 it was pea-soup.  

An exciting evening spent cooking and cleaning the oven.
