Weeks in the French Interior - Summer, 2007
(SCROLL DOWN FOR PICTURES / SLIDESHOW)
Brantôme (Dordogne) to Monpazier (Dordogne)
The cooler air,
thanks to the thunderstorm, stayed around this time. We still found
it difficult to get up early (jet-lag), but our coffee and croissants
were on the table by 8:15. We had to pack and head out by 11:00. F.
was talking up a visit to a château, and lunch in the noted Auberge
de la Truffe in Sorge in the Bergerac area. We did stop for
an extended walk and photo-shoot in an abandoned abbey, but, as happens
with unscheduled vacations, we found that the coveted truffles lunch
was "Complét" by our arrival, so we had to
drive to a little hilltop village, Thiviers, for what seemed to me a
somewhat mediocre lunch in an outdoor cafe.
Our rental car is
the gray one in the hedged parking lot, as seen from our hotel window.
