Fountainbleu Chateau

After a boring drive to Lyon we were finally here!  Rach and I went out with Julia and Lindsay to a little French restaurant where we couldn't read the menu.  We ended up having escargot, salmon and some other random French foods.  The snails actually weren't that bad!  We went on to the bar, St. James Irish Pub for a pint or two.  Nikki made out with a boy and a nasty French man rubbed our legs.  We did have a good beer, we stole the glasses but i dont remember the name of it and dont feel like looking.   -Kate

What kate forgot to tell you, and you'll soon see pictures of, is that we stopped twice on the way to Lyon.  First stop was to see Chateau Fontaibleu (spelling?) where Napoleon stood on the steps and gave some famous speech.  Second stop was at a chateau in the beaujolais (again, spelling?) wine region where we sampled the house red (three glasses to be exact) and bought some bottles as gifts.  That's it, I only mention this because there might be pictures and it would probably help to know what they were. love you-rach
