Romantic Bridges and Little Museums of Paris; Burgundy

"Of the small specialty museums in Paris were allowed to reopen weeks before the Lou, but just because they don't attract the big crowds of the famous museums doesn't mean they aren't worth your time in just a bit. We'll hear why they can be worth. Including in your travel plans next time you're in town and we'll explore what you'll find in the peaceful countryside of Burgundy and easy giant from Paris. Let's start. Today's very French edition of travel with Rick Steves along the banks of the Seine, the busy river that winds through the heart of the city. Paris to me, it's the capital of Europe and you can never get tired of ten. I just love the way the THEMM lined through. The city in the city faces. It's river and I also love the way it's laced together by bridges that just give so much meaning to your wondering through Paris. Lynch Lima is a journalist for the New York Times. She's written books about Paris to her. New Book is called. The river that made Paris, and she talks about the bridges that lease together the right bank and left bank. In Paris Elaine. Thanks for joining us. Thanks for having me on your show I. Love The way your book. The Seine the river that made Paris illustrates the importance. To France end to Paris and of course, Paris was born on this end, wasn't it? Yes, there would not have been a Paris. Had it not been for the Senate and for the heels lessee tae the island that is the center, the heart of the city of Paris, and that goes back to Roman Times. Pre Roman Times Poetry Roman times absolutely now when we think about the send through the centuries through most of the centuries, it's been a mucky riverbank where. Where you've got all sorts of slime and sewer and garbage and poverty, and and then over the centuries built this wonderful embankment that sort of teams the river, and and makes it an elegant part of the city. Talk a bit about the embankment in Paris will the embankment of Paris really the way it looks like now was conceived in the nineteenth century at before that you could pretty much walk along the banks of the Seine and bring your cows and horses. Horses and dogs right into the river, your laundry, whatever now it's a little bit more challenging, although there are places right now in Paris that you can walk down into the river and go swimming if you're so inclined, but with this mighty embankment you also have elegant bridges, lacing it together to the right and the left bank, and one of my favorite things in Paris just to walk along the banks of the river, and in or cruise the river and enjoy the. The bridges I've got so many vivid memories of just being on the top of one of those river, Seine, tourist boats, and going under these glorious bridges, and the more you know about the context of these bridges, the more funded is to sail under them. Let's just go and there's four bridges that really come to mind from. Yes, I'd love to just talk about each of them as if we're cruising down the river and I. we come to the punt new. Means the Newbridge, right? It means the new bridge, even though it's the oldest bridge in Paris. And when it was built, it was finished in the beginning of the seventeenth century, it was a miracle was an architectural dazzling creation, because it was the first bridge that didn't have houses on either side, so that people would come to the pontiff and look at the expanse of the river. It became the heart and soul of Paris where. You would come and have all sorts of wild activities. You could join up for the army or by. Orange juice or have a tooth pulled or watch jugglers or exchange God. You could buy false teeth and glass is and wooden legs and life, poultry and skin whiteners, so it really was the place to be was a gathering place a Piazza for the city. It was. You know what that's exactly right? It's like a piazza in the shape of a bridge. Now when you said it had didn't have houses on either side. Are you talking like lined with houses and shops like the punt Vecchio in Florence and the London Bridge in. Exactly and that you finally had an open view to the river, and you didn't have these barriers in the shape of houses blocking your. Visual joy of Helseth Martavis city that has some pride because it's just a practical matter. If you had a bridge that you needed help, pay for and maintain. You'd rent out space to it and it would obliterate the fact that it feels like a bridge so London Bridge and the Punt Vecchio it would be lined by shops that were paying rent to the city, so they could have that great bridge. Bridge punt new F-. It's a piazza. That's great. The next bridge we come to is the punt art that right the what what does that mean, and how is it unique well? It's the bridge of the arts and I love this bridge. Because it joy. It's a walking bridge. It's a pedestrian bridge, and so it's a great bridge for picnicking, but if you stand front of this bridge at the Louvre. And look through a gorgeous courtyard, but not many people know about is called the core cafe, the square courtyard you can look through the arch, and you can see right across the bridge to the St to default on the other side of the river, which is where the economy foss says is head. You just feel like you've got this magical long view of Paris

"Above now back to the story. The people of Rwanda long plagued by the dragon that dwelt beneath the waters of the river seine had attempted to fight back against the monstrosity for their efforts they were completely utterly devastated. The men of the town were burned alive by the creatures fiery breath, the entire town was wiped out when the creature bellowed a tidal wave of water over the surrounding land. The few survivors were left with nothing, but the soaked tattered clothes on their backs. When travelers passed by and asked what had caused this desolation, the survivors replied. It has no name but Garg Louis for that is the noise it made when it sprayed a devastating wave from its gullet. After losing their village to Gargle we, the people of ru on were hopeless homeless more than a few of the survivors felt that God had abandoned them. Until one day a priest came before them. His name was Romanos. Was the real life bishop of the region of ruin during the early to mid seventeenth century, though very little is known for sure about his life. His legend is much more interesting. As the story goes, Romana had received word of the People's plight. He knew that as a man of God. It would fall to him to lead his fellow believers through these dark times, times were hard and living was tough. The last thing Ramona's needed was these people thinking that God had abandoned them. Romanos was not a young man anymore, but he was spry and clever, and most importantly he knew that God was on his side when he heard of the garguzzos devastation, he packed a bag and set out not for the afflicted village, but for a nearby hamlet one whose help he knew he would need. Romanos bellowed his announcement as the people gathered around him in the town's circle. People of Ruwan I have come with grave tidings from your countrymen. A dragon infest the Seine. River and it has claimed the lives of many men in the neighbouring village. One man marked back. They knew of the threat months ago and yet they chose to stay where they were. Their pride in their precious land has led to their ruin. Romano's shook his head in disappointment. Come now is a man not entitled to the fruits of his Labor. How would you feel if tomorrow your homes? Your family's everything you owned and held dear was snatched away from you. I do not know how this dragon will be done away with, but I know that we have a duty to our fellow Christians to open our homes and our hearts to those who are in need. The people were not convinced. They feared that opening their homes to the survivors now would just lead the dragon to their doorstep, but Ramona's assured them otherwise he had consulted the Churches Best Jerry and determined that the creature was different from a normal dragon. It made its home in the water in the river Seine, and it seemed unlikely that the creature would stray far from that location. With his promise that the dragon would not leave the river Seine Ramona's had convinced the villagers with their blessing he set off for the remains of the village destroyed by the Gargle we. He.

"I would say, gene. Darling. Wolf how is that introduction? That's terrific. Peer darling is for d my middle name is Doris. And I've never liked it. So Diaz now for darling. Gene. As you make me, did you have any idea that we would be traveling the world as we have over the last many years. Actually, that's very interesting question because no, I didn't have any idea. But I tell you why almost didn't marry you because we your first restaurant was opposites race track in Denver, Colorado, and you were a gambler, and I thought, oh, this might not be a good idea. But after the honeymoon, but you're saying they're thirty days, then Europe when we didn't leave out any country. Did we that's true? I I was a schoolteacher and loved it. I taught back when we got dressed up to go to teach school. That's not the case any more. But we got dressed up, and it was quite an experience. I loved it. Third grade and fifth grade, but I'm talking about the thirty days in. Yes, sorry, we went we got married over Easter vacation that time and all we had I took three weeks and an extra week for spring break. We will go on a month on a honeymoon. And I am from a small town in Connecticut. A very small town thirty thousand people new London, London, Connecticut, and I had. Never seen anything like this in my life just picture books. Fantastic. What stands out, and I know it's a number of years ago, gene that really still sort of comes back from time to time about that specific trip. What country would still be in your memory Bank and come forward time to time. Well Francis, it France is absolutely amazing. And I think the most important thing that anybody can ever do when they're in Paris is take the bottle moved. It's just a plain little riverboat on the river Seine, and you see the entire city from Guam level. It's from below ground level from the Senate is just magnificent. In fact, we took our grandchildren there. I don't know two or three four years ago. And that's we only on Paris for two days. And that's the one thing that I insisted that we do we evening gene, wasn't either. I think the city of lights should be seen in the evening. It's quite an experience because all of these buildings are lit up, and especially dill die fell the Eiffel tower at midnight, your member still all at once spectacular our, grandchildren. We took a love and people on this trip. Our to our two children their spouses and five grandchildren, and it was absolutely spectacular. We'd never seen it before we arrived back in duct at midnight. Just after midnight and the Eiffel tower was lighted up with streams of lights going up and down the tower L, incredibly special and. You know, we enjoyed the bistros of by. And then we went to lake on the sea and the lake is Neo the French Alps where they ski and have championship races. And that to wasn't exciting trip with our grandchildren. But that's stay in pov- auto for a moment. What? Well, some of your favorite excursions that your toke whether whether children off without still stays vivid in your mind, gene. Well, we have. Actually about six hours away from Denver, maybe seven in the south west part of Colorado is the Mesa Verde severity, and it is spectacular. We've been there twice. And the second time was so much better than the first time because they had done more excavations. And it's where the clip dwellers lived. Indian the butt of even before a main. We're talking before the Spanish arrived, many many many many years ago. Many many not to forget that your night that the food and wine festival in Aspen, Colorado of we of causes love Vail, not only for skiing, but it's beautiful than some time. Very very busy. And then they have classic concert series in Aspen and clo- just a beautiful state of not to forget call. Rod those Rocky Mountain national remember when we climb. National apart down to grand late. That's just a beautiful state. But you know, the other parts of the US that we shouldn't forget Alaska we've been there. I don't know how many times, gene, but sort of stands out in your mind. It pleasure. They or Denali or Anchorage and Juneau w-what. Well, that's interesting question. The first time there was in nineteen ninety one and we were in the city of Juneau, which is the capital of Alaska, and the amazing thing is that. Of course, went in all the shop said, I we're available do that. Very well, very well. Yes, we have much allows Canard here. But anyway. One of the one of the stores that I mentioned told me that they had just put in the very first traffic light in Juneau, Alaska, and I should stand on the corner and watch the cars going by the native the nave the native people who lived in juvenile because they couldn't remember that. There was a traffic light. They thought kept remembering that it was a four-way stop. So everybody came to the corner stopped and went what is the light was red or they couldn't remember it. It was very interesting experience. Can you imagine the capital of a state in the United States didn't get their first traffic light until nineteen ninety one? Now, gene, you cannot reach journal by car, you're either fly into Joel or you'll get there by ship or boat. Isn't that incredible? And. It's a beautiful. City and very interesting, of course, allow scuff being close to Russia, and I believe we bought Alaska from Russia, isn't that? Right. We did. It was. Finally, many trips with and without our grandchildren. But one thing always spring up when we go traveling as the Panama Canal, your d- that is one of the most beautiful sites. Why is it so, gene? Well, it's amazing. We've been through it twice. And the silly thing that I can tell you about that is we have been from the east to the west and from the west to these and the different kids the wind blows from the west. So of you are going toward Florida, then your hair all blows in front of your face. If you go the other way towards the west towards, California, your hair blow is behind you. So that fabulous trip. Because right. I'm not quite sure when the Panama Canal was built, but it was somewhere around nineteen thirteen nineteen fourteen earlier this started and the French gave up on it as yellow fever. Problem and boy on a cruise ship. And once you are in the canal area, a specialist comes aboard who lectures over the entire loud speaker system of the ship about the history of the Panama Canal, and what's going on there. Now. Isn't that quote? Yes, for the most important thing is that even right now. Hundred years later, they are not able to do it any better than what they did it. And that's amazing that a century later. It's still the same. My very special guests as my very special wife Jean wolf. Gene, dollar wool d is the initial that. She calls us, and we are talking about travel, but we have gone traveling a lot, and we'll talk a lot more about other places. Not just the United States like the Grand Canyon. You'll send.

"Dad broadcast for many many years. It's really grew to be sitting here. Certainly miss him a ton. And we're talking about memories. Family memories over the time of dad's ninety three years, and we're going through some grandkids to peer wolf here as we look back on some of the amazing things he nailed for so many of us in the family. So that we're going to do now is bring in lily Herman, my niece, Karen, and Paul's daughter and twin with tear who we just touch base with recently in so Cal Lilly. You've finished your finals a little bit early. So you're already on thanksgiving break. Welcome back to Denver and welcome to the show Lilly. All right. Thank you. Absolutely. So we took a great trip a family trip. I think jeez. Almost the entire family went on this one handful years ago to unit France, my dad being the francophile having had several award winning French restaurants in the Denver area, always a favorite place to visit. And they wanted us to go see. Big city there that I think he'll talk about and then at beautiful lake town by a lake as well. So really tell us what you've never seen this amazing trip. The trip was absolutely incredible. I was about eleven years old. And it was my first time being era. And the first evening we were lucky enough to take a riverboat down the river Seine, and it was in the evening, and we had gotten off the back till moose, and it was around eleven fifty PM, and we are walking down a boulevard and by tower, and all of a sudden able tower started sparkling it was midnight and for Val three minutes. Eiffel tower was lit on. It was one of the most incredible things I'd ever seen and just one of the clearest memories. I have from that trip just to be with our family and just be something. So spectacular. It was really just interject there. I've been to Paris. I can't even remember how many times such an amazing city always worth going there as some of the other mazing big cities of the world are I'd never seen that either. For whatever reason we were taking you were there. I think we're just arrived or little jetlagged or what have you? But we were there super late in. Then all of a sudden you see the Eiffel tower literally sparkling with lights, quite an amazing an amazing sight. I agree. So yeah, keep going. And it was beautiful. And then we ended up taking a train to Switzerland. And while were in the train station in Paris. Four. A landmark and all of a sudden a ton of people started arriving in red and yellow never smoke bombs in a marching band, and it turned out that a rival rugby team had arrived in Paris to play a match, and there was a huge rally, and it was complete chaos in the train station. But is also one of the things I will never forget. And I think they're watching my Oprah stand there and take it all in and pretend to March around like he was proud of the marching band, and we absolutely had no idea at the moment. What was going on? But it was too for cool and something totally unexpected as well. As well. And they had those big horns going off. And I feel like they're lighting up flares as pandemonium is this massive supporter must've been rugby final their regional parts of branch super super cool. And then we got on a high-speed train. If you recall what the French called the vague TGV trained Karan test train of great speed. Basically what that means and took us to appoint in the outs of of a beautiful town. Tell us what your member from that. Ended up in Nemi drove down cut lake OFI. And we rented a house there on an I remember looking at the lake it was enormous, and it was in the mountain, and it was the bluest water. I had ever seen reading all grandkids insisted on jumping in. But you guys talk this out of it because it was too cold. And one of the funniest memories. I have is that we spent hours in a garden outside the house playing with snails. We would name them in pretend to raise them and insisted on that these were the snails that we would be eating later. And I think we were too young to comprehend what s car go. Was and where it came from. But that was super fun, and we are lucky enough to take on. Now interrupt is and drive up to the mountains to overlook the lake and we came up over a over a ridge, and we parked the car, and there we looked up and there were paragliders everywhere. Hundreds and hundreds of paragliders in the in the sky. And I remember you wanting to go paragliding, and you were super excited, and there was someone doing it right next to us and you ended up chickening out. But it was also sure did. And I still regret it. But seeing someone run off a cliff with like a kite on their back. It was a little intimidating. So great memory, really. That's awesome. Well done. So glad to have you on the radio with us today as we tribute your grandfather, my father, Pierre wolf, let's go ahead and hand over if you will. So back to my direct family, and my son Clinton Pierre wolf appleans mind middle names Pierre as well, by the way. And Clinton greet you being the youngest of the grandkids. Now, a junior in high school, we we're going to take a different track a little bit. And just ask you some questions about about Europe about Pierre. So let's start off here. What are some of the things Quinton? You admire about your grandfather. E. That he came from nothing and built a legacy around his name and his family here in Denver coming from a World War Two childhood and coming over to the Americas with basically nothing, and then creating and managing multiple restaurants, basic sensible restaurants, and then doing well for his family, and everyone around here is very something that not many people can say, I think Clinton I love that you use the word legacy. I mean, you can't win Pierre. My dad, your grandfather was around it was hard to go anywhere in the city of Denver where someone didn't recognize what they call here in town, chef Pierre asking for autographs reminiscing old memories at the restaurants, etc. C- couldn't be more right there. And then you and I were chatting this morning. You have a great memory. We took a cruise in Tanisha. It was from Quebec to. Beck is the French say to Boston. But I think you have a memory that was a great patron of the yards along with my mom, and my sister, a lot of performing arts fans in the Wolfe family, but wanted to tell us about that particular memory. So it was a one of the night performances on the cruise ship, and we're the we're not going to dock or anything, and there was an Elton John impersonator. And none of us knew that Oba was really enjoying himself until we looked over and saw him dancing Saturday night's. Alright and thinking the words and sticking his hands out on Saturday that or day Saturday, and we all thought Larry, and he was really enjoying himself and everyone everyone loved it around it. It was awesome. Yeah. It was quite the impersonation of Surrey Elton, John. I'm not sure whether to laugh or cry because that's a great memory. Well, stated in then one last question for you Clinton. My son is to to my dad Pierre will fund America's dining and travel guide. What impact did he have on people? And how could you tell? So every time that we would go out to dinner or go to lunch. There would be at least one family or person normally multiple people who would recognize him in pulled aside. And they how much they love him and his surveys and his restaurants and everything, and I never really I never really understood that he didn't really even know all of these people personally, but they remembered him because they went to his restaurants, and they remembered how great he was all of its customers. And they were all they all just loved it service. And then they all just love how hot late how his hospitality at the restaurants. And basically, I just I see that he has really impacted people. Well, whether or not he meant to he was just always such a nice guy to everyone, and what a great comment and. You know, one of the memories Clinton, I have. So the trip that lily was just referring to in Paris. I have a funny little story. I'll embarrass you hear a little bit on the national airwaves 'cause you're pretty young for this trip. But our luggage actually got lost on that trip. And so he had to stay in the same clothes for twenty four hours and how that works. Oftentimes, the airline says you get an allotment of money to kind of get something to wear if they can't find your luggage. And so we all got a little bit of money, and it was kind of fun because we got to go shopping in Paris. What's the matter with that pretty expensive? I have to say, but you ended up with his red French beret, which was just so cute. You're probably let's see Lilly said she was eleven so that means you are about eight, and you had this French beret out there, and there's one memory we have of you hailing a cab in central Peres, very similar to you. How the master of travel careful would've done back in his day. So just a great memory there. Quentin thank you so much for joining us today as as we. We share memories as a whole family and her family of chef Pierre will an icon here in Denver. My dad year grandfather in all of the various family members. But also to your point all of the people in society, all of the people who came to visit us at the restaurant people with comeback to one of my dad's restaurants for the second time, and he would remember their name. And he would remember where they sat absolutely amazing memory in that made them really want to come back for the final segment of a tribute to peer with you on America's dining.

Did you have any idea that we would be traveling the world as we have over the last many years? Actually, that's very interesting question because no, I didn't have any idea. But I tell you why almost didn't marry you because we your first restaurant was opposites racetrack in Denver, Colorado. And you're a gambler, and I thought, oh, this might not be a good idea. But after the honeymoon. But you're think they're thirty days in Europe when we didn't leave out any country. Did we that's true? I I was a schoolteacher and loved it. I talked back when we got dressed up to go to teach school. That's not the case anymore, but we got dressed up, and it was quite an experience. I loved it. Third grade and fifth grade, but I'm talking about thirty days in then. Yes, sorry. We went we got married over Easter vacation that time. And so we had I took three weeks and an extra week for spring break. We will go on a month on a honeymoon. And I am from a small town in Connecticut. A very small town thirty thousand people new London, London, Connecticut, and I had. Never seen anything like this in my life just picture books. Fantastic. What stands out, and I know it's a number of years ago, gene that really still sorta comes back from time to time about that specific trip. What country would sort of still be in your memory Bank and come forward time to time. Well Francis, it France is absolutely amazing. And I think the most important thing that anybody can ever do when they're in Paris is take the bottle moved. It's just a plain little riverboat on the river Seine, and you see the entire city from ground level. It's from below ground level from the Senate is just magnificent. In fact, we took our grandchildren there. I don't know two or three four years ago. And that's the we only own Paris for two days. And that's the one thing that I insisted that we do we are evening, gene, wasn't either. I think the city of lights should be seen in the evening. It's quite an experience because all of these buildings are lit up, and especially dude I fail. The Eiffel tower at midnight, your member that still all at once spectacular our grandchildren. We took a love and people on this trip. Our to our two children their spouses and five grandchildren, and it was absolutely spectacular. We'd never seen it before we arrived back in docked at midnight, just after midnight. And the Eiffel tower was light it up would streams of lights going up and down the tower L incredibly special, and you know, we enjoyed the bistros of buddy. And then we go went to lake honesty. And the lake is near the French Alps where they ski and and have championship basis. And that to wasn't exciting trip with our grandchildren. But that's stay in Colorado for a moment. What where some of your favorite excursions that your Naito whether wizard children all without still stays of vivid in your mind, gene? Well, we have. Actually about six hours away from Denver, maybe seven in the south west part of Colorado is the Mesa bird Mesa Verde. And it is spectacular. We've been there twice. And the second time was so much better than the first time because I had done more excavations, and it's just where the cliff dwellers lived. Indian the, but even before a main we're talking way before the Spanish arrived, many many many many years ago. Many many not to forget that your night that the food and wine festival in Aspen. It's called a lot of we of course, we love Vail not only for skiing, but it's beautiful than some time. Very very busy. And then they have classic concert series in Aspen and clove auto is just a beautiful state of not to forget, call Abbado's Rocky Mountain national remember when we climb up national apart down to ground late. It's just a beautiful state. But you know, the other parts of the US that we shouldn't forget Alaska we've been there. I don't know how many times, gene. But sort of stands out in your mind. Is pleasure. They or Denali or Anchorage and Juneau vote. Well, that's interesting question. The first time we were there was in one thousand nine hundred ninety one and we were in the city of Juneau, which is the capital of Alaska, and the amazing thing is that. I, of course, went in all the shops. That were available do that. Very well, very well. Yes, we have much Alaskan art here. But anyway. One of the one of the stores that I'm in told me that they had just put in the very first traffic light in Juneau, Alaska, and I should stand on the corner and watch the carnage going by the native the native of the native people who lived in juvenile because they couldn't remember that. There was a traffic light. They thought kept remembering that it was a four-way stop. So everybody came to the corner stopped and went whether the light was red or they couldn't remember it. It was very interesting experience. Can you imagine the capital of a state in the United States didn't get their first traffic light until nineteen ninety one? Gene, you cannot reach journal by car you either fly into journal or you'll get there by ship or boat. Isn't that incredible? And it's a beautiful. City and very interesting off 'cause allow scuff being close to Russia. And I believe we bought Alaska from Russia is that right? He did. Voiced by many trips with and without our grandchildren. But one thing you'll always spring up when we go traveling as the Panama Canal. That is one of the most beautiful sites. Why is it so, gene? Well, it's amazing. We've been through it twice. And the silly thing that I can tell you about that is we have been from the east to the west and from the west to these and the different is the wind blows from the west. So of you are going toward Florida, then your hair all blows in front of your face. If you go the other way, west towards, California, your hair blow is behind you. So that funds fabulous trip. Because right. I'm not quite sure when Panama Canal was built, but it was somewhere around nineteen thirteen nineteen fourteen earlier, they started and French gave up on it. Yellow fever. Problem and boy on a cruise ship. And once you are in the canal area, a specialist comes aboard who lectures over the entire loud speaker system of the ship about the history of the Panama Canal, and what's going on there. Now, it's an earthquake. Yes. Well, the most important thing is that even right now. Hundred years later, they are not able to do it any better than what they did it. And that's amazing that a century later. It's still the same by very special guest is my very special wife, Jean both gene Dahlan will d is the initial she calls us, so and we talk about travel, but we have gone traveling a lot, and we'll talk a lot more about other places. Not just the United States like the Grand Canyon your sanity. And so forth Yellowstone in Montana and Wyoming, Utah Zion new could talk about whatever back.

Of course went in all the shops. That were available. Do that. Very well, very well. Yes, we have much allows art here. But anyway. One of the one of the stores that I mentioned told me that they had just put in the very first traffic light in Juneau, Alaska, and I should stand on the corner and watch the cars going by the native the nave the native people who lived in juvenile because they couldn't remember that. There was a traffic light. They thought kept remembering that it was a four-way stop. So everybody came to the corner stopped and went whether the light was rhetoric. They couldn't remember it. It was very interesting experience. Can you imagine the capital of a state in the United States didn't get their first traffic light until nineteen ninety one? Now, gene, you cannot reach by car you either fly into journal or you'll get there by ship or boat. Isn't that incredible? It's a beautiful. City and very interesting, of course, allow scuff being close to Russia, and I believe we bought Alaska from Russia. Isn't that? Right. Too many trips with and without our grandchildren. But one thing you'll always spring up. When we go traveling is the Panama Canal. That is one of the most beautiful sites. Why is it so, gene? Well, it's amazing. We've been through it twice. And the silly thing that I can tell you about that is we have been from the east to the west and from the west to the east and the different is the wind blows from the west show of you are going toward Florida, Dan, your hair all blows in front of your face. Go the other way towards charge California. Your hair blow is behind you saw that footage fabulous trip. Because right. I'm not quite sure. One off Panama Canal was somewhere around nineteen thirteen nine hundred and fourteen earlier. They started and the French gave up on it because of yellow fever. Problem and we were on a cruise ship. And once you are in the canal area. A specialist comes aboard who lectures over the entire loud speaker system of the ship about the history of the Panama Canal, and what's going on there. Now. That correct. Yes. Well, the most important thing is that even right now. Hundred years later, they are not able to do it any better than what they did it. And that's amazing that a century later. It's still the same. My very special guest is my very special wife, Jean wolf, gene Dahlan will d is the initial that she causes and we are talking about travel, but we have gone traveling a lot, and we'll talk a lot more about other places. Not just the United States like the Grand Canyon Yosemite. And so forth Yellowstone in Montana and Wyoming Utah Zion. You.
