Pilgrimage Paris - Chartres 2003, Part 2
A description in (a few) words and (many) pictures
Wednesday, 09/03/2003: Hike to Epernon, there a good lunch and after that a little nap on a meadow. Short stop at the church of Hanches, an unexpected view to the cathedral from 20 km air distance. From here to Maintenon, there we passed the night in the hotel Le Saint Denis directly in the center. We walked this day approximately 25 km.
Thursday, 09/04/2003: We walked along the little river Eure, passed fields and the forest. The cathedral could be seen from 10 km distance. Arrival in Chartres in the late afternoon. We took up quarters in Maison St. Yves, near the cathedral. Supper in one of the little saloons in the city. We walked this day approximately 25 km.
Friday, 09/05/2003: The culmination, finally the labyrinth in the cathedral, free of chairs. Gernot gave a lecture on labyrinths and ancestors. In the evening an improvised picknick in Maison St. Yves, the chairman of the Association des Amis de Saint Jacques d'Eure et Loir came for a visit.
