Homme de Fer to Porte de l’Hôpital

Mum and I traveled to the south of the city, using Line A. We wanted to visit the area called Petite France because it looked most interesting when the Petit Train took us there last time.

From Homme de Fer to Porte de l’Hôpital…

As we alighted from the tram, a fire engine appeared and sped past us…

 

 

Allez, pompiers!

Mum and a tram…

The streets around Quai Saint-Nicolas were very quiet…

‘Not much is happening here, is it?’

Mum and I were a bit disappointed because most of the business on the south bank of the river were closed and the area appeared deserted. It was a very hot afternoon, and we were dying to replenish ourselves with some cold drink. Yet, it took us ages before we stumbled across a small cafe on Place Henri Dunant. At Cafe Recto-verso, we sat at one of the tables under the shade and drank orange juice.

We felt much energised after a breather and headed northwards, crossing Ponts Couverts which connected the north bank and the south bank.

Then, we carried on sauntering along Quai Turckhelm…

At Rue du Faubourg-National, we crossed to the west bank of the river and walked to a tram stop at Faubourg-National Gare.

Now, it is time for us to head back to the cathedral, we waited for Line B to carry us home…
