Up early for what turned out to be an easy and short ride to the dialysis center. Doctor and nurses were all very nice.
Afterwards, had a quick (pizza) and green salad lunch and headed for the airport. After a few missteps (the car rental centers have moved) we got a nice Audi A4 turbo diesel with a six speed (David wants to get one at home) and headed south.
Two hours later we arrived in Tours and found our hotel pretty easily. It is an old “Grand” hotel – nice but a bit tired. Riding the elevator is an adventure, as when it arrives at a floor it drops about six inches with a jolt.
Strolled around Tours a bit and had dinner at a small bistro – smoked salmon and beef tartare for David and entrecote for Bev. Nothing fancy, but – with a nice bottle of local wine, it was perfect.
Look forward to visiting the countryside tomorrow.
