I choose the Baroque café in Amiens, right by the Somme, because Tom Coryat was active in Europe in the “Baroque” era, the history book tells me. I must research this. Here all is riverside cafés, Cathedral views, and Pink Floyd. “Wish You Were Here.” It reminds me vividly of the center of Ljubljana.

Sunday night: all is quiet but the coach party-people.The centre an oasis.

Looks gorgeous. Do you--and did Tom--have the desire to just sit still there for a week?
