Arrival in Dijon

When our lightning-fast TGV train pulled into the station at Dijon Ville, a sudden burst of rain was sluicing down the train windows. We struggled our heavy bags out onto the platform into a cold mist, just barely sheltered by the platform awnings. The rain poured down.

Our friend Nancy was there to meet us. By the time we'd gone down one station escalator and back up another, the rain had lessened and we made it to her car. It was a quick ride through the narrow medieval streets of the center of town, and we arrived.

It is a medieval townhouse, originally built in 1541, in the Rue de Petit Potet. The enclosed garden is still damp with the rain, but the sun came briefly out.

We're tired, but feel welcomed and ready for the next adventures.

It's awesome to stay in a house that's older than your home country.

Aunt Snow, I'm catching up on your travel posts via Google Reader, but I wanted to let you know that I *am* reading -- and I'm loving each and every one!
