Still battling away with the basics of driving this car... Actually getting out of the underground car park is a feat in itself, as I keep stalling or crazily revving up the slope for fear of getting stuck beneath the metal door!
A great deal of practice may be involved before even the slightest pretention of perfection...
It was pouring with rain today, but I did force myself to drive off into another car park - this one situated in the depths of Place d'Erlon - the main square in town.
The first trip here in the summer left a lasting memory as I tried to control the car, winding its way down and down the spiralling lane to reach the fifth and final floor, far below ground level. Not really a moment of glory for me, so I thought I'd better go back and face the beast again. Still work in progress.
Sadly, most of the facial features have been lost, but you can see the beauty of the forms themselves and the symbolic motives that underline the importance of Reims as the Cité des Sacres - the holy site of coronation.
