After saying goodbye to Susan at the Airport, checking in on the Avenue de Visé, and going to the ULB to send and receive e-mail, we headed through Mons and continued to Rouen, the city where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake.  The cross on the right marks the spot where this took place.  We got a hot restaurant idea while visiting Rouen.

Orangina is generally not shaken before being opened, is it?  Well, this time it was, so we pulled the car over to the side of the road to try to de-stickify everything. Shaken or stirred?
Is it warm in here?  After nearly running out of gas and having a drunk offer to get in our car and drive us to the small farm (a.k.a. 'la métairie') where we had a reservation for the night, we found our way through Dol-de-Bretagne to the place we would be staying.  To the right is the view from our window in the farm.  Click for more Normandy and Brittany pictures. scènes du coin
Visiting Le Mont St. Michel and the resort town of St. Malo filled our Monday up quite nicely.  Click on the picture of Mont St. Michel for more... Mt. St. Michel and St. Malo
