A4 near Verdun on the Way Back to Paris

We did not stop at Verdun, although it is a 3-star Michelin Green Guide destination.  The history is too heavy for us.  The story was, the year after the WWI was over, when the Spring came, the whole field was covered with puppy flowers.  That is the reason, till today, people still wear the puppy flower on WWI memorial day.  When we passed by the area in this cloudy spring day, the field is covered with Rapeseed flowers.

We had a quick lunch at the rest area of A4 near Verdun then arrived a Charles de Gaulles airport in late afternoon to return the car and headed to Paris on Taxi.
