We drove to a couple more Bastide towns today. The first was Montflanquin, which is a fairly small place, but again has lots of stone cottages, a main square in the centre of town, views across the valleys etc. Garth bought a sandwich in a small cafe in the village, and for less than $6, got a baguette at least ten inches long, four inches across and choc-a-block full of ham, Brie, and salad.

... come. Look what we are doing! I have no right to whinge or be upset about a ****** apartment we are only sleeping in for 3 nights!! Look at all I have to be grateful for! I have had a few little episodes like this along the trip – it never takes me long to get my positive outlook back, and as Mikey keeps telling me, I still have the right to have not so good days. Nevertheless, I endeavour to make these as few as possible (on this trip and in life). A little self-reflection ...
