Maison Saint Vaast -- Arras

This is our nineth day walking but we did tourist things in Arras. Our room here is about 10 minute walk to the city centre. The petit de jeune was first rate. Made the trip out to Vimy. The tourist office phoned a taxi for a special rate of 45e return. About a 20 minute drive. Visited the underground caverns in Arras with the tour guide. It was very
Emotional hearing letters written by soldiers who died and hearing how 24000 commonwealth solders came out fighting after eight days underground.
Tourist office is phoning our stays for the next three days. Tomorrow we are off to Bapaume.
