About a week ago, we drove up to Blois to take CHM to the train station. Walt was at the wheel, and I sat in the back seat. One reason for sitting in back is that I wanted to see how comfortable the Citroën felt from back there.
Walt driving the Citroën... No, 86 is not the temperature. It's the speed in kilometers per hour (about 55 mph).
I snapped a shot as we drove past the Château de Cheverny, just 12 or 15 miles north of our house.
I don't usually post portraits of people here, but I like this one of our friend CHM, a Parisian who has lived in the U.S. for 45 years. He usually spends a week or 10 days with us in the summer nowadays.
We had eaten lunch in Bracieux, just south of the 16th-century Château de Chambord, which we then drove past on our way to Blois and the train station. I snapped this from the car.
I was comfortable in the back seat of the Citroën, with sufficient leg room. Four months after buying the car, I feel very lucky to have gotten such a good deal on a previously owned vehicle. I've driven it about 3000 kilometers since I bought it in February — four months ago. That's just short of 2,000 miles — the distance I drove in a month when I lived in California.
