Our trip to trace the wartime path of the 13th Field Artillery Observation Battalion has begun.  Our first night after leaving Fellbach, Germany, was spent in Strasbourg, Alsace, France.  

 We shared the city that evening with the European Parliament, and thus paid a doubled price for our room at the Ibis Hotel, downtown.

Meanwhile Alex went out for a beer and conversation at a local bar.
