Rouen I (7/6/2016)

Wednesday, July 6, 2016
The way to pronounce Rouen correctly, is said to sound like a donkey braying. The 'r' is so far back in the throat that you hardly hear it, then a blended 'ooo-o[n],' without pronouncing the 'n.' Got it?
This morning was spent cruising along the Seine. Many people slept in. There was a presentation at 10:00 about St Joan of Arc.
Unlike the River Rhein, there are no signs telling you the names of the towns along the river, nor are there giant kilometer markers.
