Dijon in the Details
Posted on June 11, 2014
We arrived in Dijon just minutes before we were to meet the fellow who would pass us the keys to our Airbnb apartment. Fortunately we had learned pretty quickly how to program the navigator in our blessed German Audi so we were able to drive crooked streets to our destination without error. We had not been so lucky with the navigation unit on the French Renault we had had for three weeks, which we were never able to use, even with the help of a young experienced friend in Freiburg.
We were so lucky to find a parking spot just a block away from our destination. But in that single block, as we trudged along with our suitcases, I found lots to photograph, which in the end typified for us the whole of Dijon. Here’s a look at some of the things we saw right away. A few pleased us, many didn’t.
Now we’ll venture further afield as we head toward the heart of the city.
