In search of Napoleon

After a ride along an other very dramatic coast we arrived in Ajaccio – the birthplace of Napoleon – where we stayed in hotel uh… Napoleon and had lunch in uh… cafe Napoleon. The emperor is everywhere although feelings are mixed because he also is the symbol of France which is not really popular here.  You hardly see a France flag, and the french names of towns and villages is usually cross out in favour of the Corsican ones. But anyway it was fun and interesting to see the house where he was born. Ajaccio is a pleasant city with many nice restaurants where you can sample the excellent Corsican cuisine and (rosé) wines.
