Two Weeks between PARIS and LA MANCHE (continued)

Honfleur was the end of the line for a cruise down the Seine before we retraced our steps (or rather the river flow) up-stream to Paris. The protected port is over a 1000 years old.

I really enjoyed strolling narrow alleys and cobblestone streets,

and the wooden church, dating from the second half of the 15th century, constructed right after the Hundred Years War.  It gives the impression of an upside-down ship’s hull.

We also visited Deuxville, where  A Man and a Woman was filmed and a film festival is held.
