Chateau Ramstein

Here is another aerial picture of Chateaus Ramstein and Ortenburg, which I took on the same day as the last one, but from the nearby Haut Koningsburg..

We had a great party last night at Eric’s sister’s house in Verneuil-sur-Seine. It is a large old house, in a u-shape (so interesting layout and flow of the rooms) with a courtyard in the middle.  Eric had put out some candle-lanterns in the courtyard but we mostly stayed indoors due to the cold (smokers excepted).  There was nobody else there from the specific project that I had worked on in Paris when I met Eric.  But there were few actual Parisians on that project.  However most of the people there were DCS employees or ex-DCS.  I met some interesting people, including a Swiss-Columbian couple who had travelled from Geneva to attend the party (i.e. further than me !). 

The highlight of the party was at 00 :30 this morning when Eric announced that he and Virginie were getting married on 12 June next year, in Paris.  Plans have already been underway for the past 2 months, but it has been a well guarded secret and was a surprise to everyone except close family.  As I had a late night and an early train to catch into Paris in the morning, I had only 3 hours sleep.  What a fortuitous night for the clocks to go back one hour!
