And here we are at Nantes railway station

On a visit to L'ecole de Mines, we got to spend a couple of days in this lovely city of Nantes. Located in the western part of France, about 500 kms form Paris. I learn later of the rich history of this region starting with the Gauls, the Roman and the English
Two days was hardly sufficient to do justice to this historic city in the erstwhile province of Brittany. Wish I could visit the coast and the many beautiful  cathedrals, but not to be.
Some shots from the city centre
Stade de la Beaujoire -the home stadium of the Food ball club de Nantes

The tram-very effective means of transportation

It looks more like a tram rather than a train. Beautiful.
