Another fantastic day. The chidlren have excelled themselves once again. Lots of great listening again. We arrived in Arras and began our tour by looking at the architecture of the houses in the Grande Place, they are Baroque , by the way. Half way round we all decided we should stop in a cafe and order a drink, some of us had une tasse de chocolat , un coca, un sprite and deux the. Tom, our animateur( Kingswood guide)had un cafe. We then had the remainder of our tour , you can still see bullet holes in some of the buildings from the second world war. We then went to see the trenches at Vimy Ridge, where the Canadians took the ridge in 1917 from the Germans. The monument to the fallen is very beautiful and the children were very respectful and interested. We then drove past a British cemetary from the 1st world war and also a German cemtary. We arrived back at the chateau late for dinner, had five minutes to get ready for the disco and enjoyed dancing until 10.00pm. All packed and in bed by 11.00pm. I wonder how they will get up at 6.30am tomorrow morning? We will have breakfast at 7.30pm and leave the chateau at 8.00am to go to the market at Eu where we are all looking forward to spending some more of our euros. We will be on our way at 10.00am to get to Calais in time for our shuttle at 1.00pm. We’ll keep you informed about our journey home once we get to Britiain.
