Saying Goodbye to Metz

Upon our return to Metz on Wednesday from Rheims, we began the process of packing up our suitcases and bidding farewell to a city that we enjoyed so much. We went to the Metz Synagogue yesterday and met with the Grand Rabbi to thank him for the warmth of his community; we took a last look at the lovely cheese in the Covered Market; we walked around the central part of the city and said goodbye to our neighborhood baker.

Jean was incredibly wonderful and drove us - and our six suitcases - to the Lorraine-TGV station this afternoon. We were able to get on and off the train without too much of a problem (this is always the worst part of traveling in France) and we are at a hotel near the airport for our final night in France.
