Finale

The tour ends this afternoon in Paris. Which is actually where it all began for this family. We happened to be in Paris on the final day of the tour in 1998. And our hotel room overlooked the race! Can you believe it? We’d watch the laps taking place on the television and then run to the window and throw our heads out to watch them come up from a tunnel and make a left at the statue of Jean D’Arc. Our hotel was next to that statue.

And we’ve been hooked ever since.

Jim and I have just turned on eurosport. And the riders have just arrived in Paris. Ah, the memories.

Vive le tour. Le tour toujours.
