This is our first stop on our new tour Villages and Vineyards of Eastern France. So say with me, Reims, sounds like France without the F. Yeah I know go figure, crazy French language. We thought Reims would be a small village but instead it is a large thriving city. Our hotel the Hotel Continental is just across the park from the train station and overlooks the main street, a mall like area filled with restaurants and bars. So alive. The fountain above represents the popping of champagne corks. Can you see it, I can.
