|Chateau de Grillemont|
|Walking up to the chateau, the couple waiting on us are from The Netherlands.|
There are thousands of chateaux in France and most of them are privately owned. Paula knew of such a chateau that is only opened two weeks a year. The tour guide is a neighbor of hers, a delightful young woman, who is working of a degree in literature.

Chateau de Grillemont is on a quiet country road, away from everything. The owner, who is 93, still lives there, but in a small part of the building. When we arrived, there was another couple already there, who were Dutch. Turns out Paula speaks a bit of Dutch, so we all got along well. Plus, the man had played basketball in the US! He spoke English with an American accent and had played in Arizona, so he knew of the University of Arizona's basketball team
