Access into and out of the city is reasonably easy and the loaction of this hotel right in the centre made it an easy spot to commute from. Rooms were well souind proofed and with good showers and beds. Amiens is a great place as a base to explore the surroundings, but in itself it is a lovely town with a stunning cathedral.
Be sure not to miss the illuminations at night Amazing to see how it was and amazing how technology can make us see the past.
Also take a boat trip in the "hortillonnages", gardens on tiny little islands just outside the city. Become quiet as you ride the Circuit of Remembrance : so many soldiers buried and so many more lost. Lest we forget Watch the birds in Marquenterre and revisit the iron age in Samara. Just enjoy the countryside all around. Picardy is a great place to unwind.
There's lots to see, but you can also just "laiseer faire, laisser passer". I stayed in Best Western Hotel de l'Univers in the centre of Amiens, a good hotel with pleasant staff. I was so lucky as to have a view of the cathedral from my window.
The only negative point is that the hotel doesn't have private parking space, so you have to use the pay-parking spaces all around. For a good dinner I can recommend "The salmon house" and La maison du petit bedon, both beside the cathedral. Don't forget to taste a "Ficelle Picardienne", which is a pancake filled with creamy ham and mushrooms, gratinated with cheese.

Could it be possible that the big bang was a rotating explosion? Everything in the universe seems to rotate, why not the whole universe as well?

In my mind it seems like the centrifugal force, though fictional, could equally explain the increased acceleration as galaxies move farther apart. Hi Dan, and thank you for your question!
It so happens that there is a radiation that bathes the entire visible universe, remnant of the moment in its past when it became transparent. That radiation, called the Cosmic Microwave Background, is extraordinarily identical whichever direction you look at in the night sky, from anywhere on Earth. Had there been a rotation, this radiation would be affected by it and we would see it. So if there is one, it is minute. But we do not believe we are at that center.
The expansion and its acceleration seems to be happening wherever you are, whether on Earth or far away. If you want to learn more about these things and many others , may I suggest you have a look at my book, The Universe in Your Hand, which was just published? In any case again, I hope this helps! Hello Christophe, Many thanks for your quick reply and the new food for thought. It seems incredible that every galaxy can be moving away from every other galaxy everywhere.
This is difficult to visualize. However, to clarify my thought, I was picturing the universe rotating around its own center, not the universe rotating around us Earth. More like a rotating expanding balloon.
If all the galaxies are on the surface of the balloon, they all move away from each other as the balloon expands. No matter which galaxy you inhabit you are moving away from the others. If the balloon rotates there would be a centrifugal outward force, but no one would know the balloon was rotating unless they were not on the surface of the balloon or outside the universe. This may completely wrong, but it is interesting to think about. I will have to learn more about the Cosmic Microwave Background before posting my next question.
I look forward to enjoying your new book. Best regards, Dan. So, whatever that being tries to contemplate using his mind or senses. That contemplation will be limited and inaccurate. So, whatever knowledge we gain here will be limited.
