Journalist Fran Stoddard is in France this week with a group from Burlington City Arts, to celebrate the Lake Champlain Quadricentennial. She's been recording videos of the trip on a Flip Mino, and now that we've solved the technical challenges of posting them to the web (thanks, John Canning!), we'd like to share them with you. Click here for her earlier posts.
The first video is from Brouage.
The second is from Mont St. Michel. Writes Fran, "Our guide, Francois, sings from the La Regle de Saint Benois, or "The Rules of St. Benedict."
Fran shot the third video at Omaha Beach — where Allied forces landed on June 6, 1944 — on Memorial Day. She interviews Marcelle Leahy, wife of Senator Patrick Leahy, who talks about attending the 50th and 60th "D-Day" anniversary services.
