I'm in two time frames in Cambridge - one if the 1940s and the other in the 1990s. I seem to be visiting graves at the moment!

In 1173 in the guest chamber at Loches Castle in the Loire Valley. Eleanor and I are awaiting the wrath of her husband. (In real life I am procrastinating grading papers, but I'd rather be at Loches Castle!)

:D :D I'd be procrastinating about grading papers myself. I took a long weekend to read it even though I could have done better things. Scrub the tub, wash the windows, replace the blinds, shampoo the carpet. No, I read.

Thanks for the picture of the castle.

I'm really enjoying it. It's the sequel to "Napoleon's Pyramids", and I'm nearly down with it. The author is actually from my state, which is nice too!

You're welcome. Perhaps when I have some time I'll post some photos and information on the castles in Devil's Brood. I think it is interesting to learn about actual settings.
