We are now in Riquewihr which is a small village in the heart of the Alsace region.
It is a very old village and we have an apartment in a building that is dated 1595. The apartment has been renovated though since then. Mind you, it is 49 steps up from the front door to the apartment door and then another 15 or 16 up to the bedroom. I am sure my leg muscles are getting stronger
The village is surrounded by vineyards and we are planning on some wine tasting tomorrow.
Today we went for a drive into the hills around the area traveling on some of the roads that are used in the Tour de France. We enjoyed a picnic in a forest and some amazing scenery.
The food continues to be excellent although quantities are very large in this part of the world. I have included some photos of the different dishes of the region and also of our apartment for you.
We have another day here before we venture off to Switzerland.
