On the rails again...

(The TGV in the station of Les Sables d'Olonne, May 30, 2000)

This is the first week the French national railways have opened a TGV line directly from Les Sables to and from Paris.  Unfortunately, there are still a few kinks in the rope.  Today, the TGV in the picture has technical problems that prevent it from leaving the station.  Dr. V. Lastinger and I will therefore be transferred to a normal regional train which will take us to Nantes.  There we will catch another TGV and be off to Paris to rejoin the 2000 WVU-Vendéens.

As you see, things are fine back at the Hôtel d'Amiens.  Here Ryan Schiffbauer and Rebecca Tarabrella take the elevator up to their rooms.


Cynthia Howley, Amanda Alderman, and Jennifer Lawrence settle in for a little rest before a full day tomorrow.




Allison Lastinger, Rebecca Tarabrella, and Manieka Green seem pleases with their accommodations.




After going over details of our stay in Paris, some of the WVU-Vendéens go for an evening walk around Paris.  Here, the Arc de Triomphe is a glorious sight to behold at night in the City of Lights.

 Stay tuned to WVU-V!
