Outside the Cathedral as we emerged , we encountered the sound of a doleful bagpipe droning away as a memorial group assembled to enter the church for a special service. (Bagpipes on solemn occasions seem to show up all over the world).

Swallowing fire ...
A man swallowed fire and entertained tourists at the square.
I don't know, whether it is a local custom, or a man swallowing fire is simply a guest performer. However I have seen such a show for the first time.
This is the Loire Valley & nowhere in France can you find more Red Wine than here. I'm no expert on wines since I'm allergic to alcohol but I did see lots of wine on sale everywhere in Tours. & mind you, they are dirt cheap, some even cheaper than chocolates!
So far, I only saw bottles in the range of Euro 3-30. I did buy a bottle for my dad but it was in Paris that I bought it. Highly recommended by Guyon are those labels from St. Julien, St. Estephe & Pomerol. The one I bought costs Euro 75 (duty free).

A different kind of melon
They are melons but I'm not sure what they are called. Unlike any I've seen in the States, Canada or Australia.
Just something new :-)
