May 30: Chinon has great charm, food, and narrow streets

>> Chinon, France, has an abundance of medieval charm, starting with the beautifully pruned trees along the river Vienne, on the side of which is its beautifully preserved town. And like many of France's quaint medieval towns, finding parking during peak hours in high season is difficult, although if you are not afraid to drive through its pencil-slim streets, like you see below, you'll eventually be rewarded.

After circling the area a few times, we finally parked on its main street. After lunch, we visited the famed Chinon Castle (Fortresse Royal) that has even narrower streets. Flush after drinking some delicious Chinon wine, I challenged Phil to drive them, and so he did - straight up, then straight down.

Here are a few photos of our downhil exit taken via my iPad Air through our somewhat bug-splattered windshild:

There are really no words to describe this experience except from time to time we thought the passages were too narrow for our car. Our biggest thrills came from turning ultra-tight corners while traveling downhill!
