Verdun, France

 Nate took off today.  Bob, Nate and I went to Verdun, France to see a WWI Memorial.
 The weather was awful and made this somber place even more somber.
The physical damage was still evident almost 100 years later!
We watched a 30 minute video from the war.  
At the end, they mentioned that bones of the unknown soldiers were kept under the memorial.  
As we left the memorial, we were able to peak in the windows to see the bones.  
 We stopped at Cora (a French grocery store) on our way home to buy mussels!
 And macaroons!
This man ate his weight in mussels!  He had about four helpings!
