Hot! Hot! Hot!

After the castle, we go back down the hill to center of town.  Due to a miscue, we have missed our meeting with our guide.  She's at the top of the hill, and I race back to catch her.  I might add that in this searing heat, the feat is no small one.  Quite honestly I climbed a bit too fast for the conditions and I'll pay a small price as the day and night wear on.  But for the moment, our guide is proud to lead us down the main medieval street of Chinon.  It is very much the same today as it was when Saint Joan rode into town in 1429.  This plaque is from 1929 and marks the 500th anniversary of the ride through Chinon toward the castle.
