First I have to say that I travelled first class from
Barcelona to Toulouse. It was pretty cool, nice big leather chairs, radio and
then later they played a movie. Gemma, Hector and I got there fairly late,
between 9:30 and 10:00. Dana and her friend Theresa (who is also doing this
program) met us at the train station and we found a bite to eat. We “got to”

We have just got home after 8 hours walking around the sights of Albi. It has the world's largest brick cathedral, St Cecile Cathedral, and from the outside it is almost ugly.

After walking the city's cobblestone streets, we moved outside the first walls of the city. Carcassonne is reputed to have been France's best fortified city, in part because it has two walls set about 100 feet apart. The area between the walls was also romantically lit. There, we saw families and couples dotted around the inner wall enjoying champagne ...
