Honfleur France

A short taxi ride from the port at LeHavre, is a little village called Honfleur, on the Flower Coast of France.
It's known for its interesting arts & crafts shops, as well as its unusual timbered houses.
It was really interesting to just wander around, sit in an outdoor cafe, and discover the strangest women's toilet I have ever seen

There were narrow crowded streets on the way to Honfleur.

Lots of fresh markets and good food.

And a fussy dog who wouldn't eat french fries. She was holding out for some of the burger....which she got.

Note the men's toilet. Nothing fancy, but...
the one at ground level was the women's toilet. Some friends later told us they saw these in Russia.

Interesting notes:

  • France is the third largest country in Europe, after Russia and the Ukraine, and the fourth most populous.

  • It is highly urbanized, with three-quarters of the population living in cities.

  • The French are among the healthiest, wealthiest and best educated in the world. But it also is the fourth most heavily taxed in the EU, after Sweden, Denmark and Belgium.

  • From 1991-1999 the unemployment rate never fell below 10% and the slowing economy has also made it more difficult for the French government to maintain generous social welfare benefits.

France Facts:

  • Government: Presidential republic with a centralized national government.

  • Population: ~60 million

  • Currency: Euro
