Sunday, March 15th, 1992 Strasbourg, France
The night was full of bells….quarter hour and hourly. They ring for about five minutes before and after each
There was a Japanese man about about 60 years of age from
Then we strolled along the river watching the swans. Ended up at the cathedral and walked up to the top of the bell tower. The entry fee was 20f. Saw the mechanics that operate the bells. Met a very nice family from
I got dressed after Jim dried off and we bundled up and went over to the cathedral musee. It’s housed in a building that was used by administration during construction of the church. Very impressive and also had some large pieces of furniture from early times. Hugh armores (for clothes), etc. Went into church to look at the astrological clock, etc. Need to go back at 12:30 to see it all work. Interesting kneelers..very short chairs with bamboo seats and otherwise like a kneeler. Walked to local McDonalds for dinner. About 70f.
Continued walking the streets for a while. It had stopped raining and we even saw the local fire department (silver hats) putting out a fire in an electrical sign on a store. Too bad we’d left the camera in the room,. Now I’m watching TV while my cast dries. We washed it to get rid of some of the smell. The cast is a "half cast" and it held on by elastic bandages. Because of the pins I'm allowed to take it off for short periods of time to wash and that helps. Jim has gone for maximum of two hours of night exploration. He has the map, flashlight and umbrella. I’m watching French TV. Looks like more rain tomorrow.
