France Trip Day 11 - American Cemetary and Rouen

 This is part of the visitors center at the American Cemetary.

Jen arrived a bit earlier than Cathy and I and was lucky enough to hear "The Battle Hymn of the Republic" played by the carillon bells.
There are wall to wall grave stones.  This is just the part that shows Omaha beach in the background.
After moment of reflection, we left for Rouen.

Rouen, France
The front door of our hotel, "Hotel de Bourgtheroule".

Inside the hotel courtyard
There were lovely carvings on the courtyard walls.

The Hotel de Bourgtheroulde, is a stone mansion of the 15th century added in the reign of Francis I., the fa├žades are decorated with bas-reliefs representing scenes from the meeting of the Field of the Cloth of Gold and allegories from the Triumphs of Petrarch.

There is a town square in front of our hotel and this is what we see from our window.

Cathy had a migraine headache as we came into Rouen so she slept while Jen and I went out for Indian food and brought back some tanduri for Cathy.

Then, good night!

Till tomorrow!
