They arrived on Sunday evening after a train ride from Paris and a car ride to the Shenandoah. Monday and Tuesday they spent touring the wine country of Burgundy visiting wineries and sampling the fares of Bourgogne.
They headed out, early Wednesday morning, for the drive to Le Mans and the music festival. The Fête de la Musique is being held in most middle to large sized towns in France on June 21. Cathy, Matt, and Mike were joining a group of forty or so composing a coral group from Las Cruces who had been invited to participate in the French festivities.
