    ... weighed 55 lbs. The crossbow was vey powerful and accurate but you could only fire a crossbow twice a minute whereas a regular bow and arrow could be fired 10 times. The trebuchet could toss large stones of over 200 lbs. a couple of hundred yards but only once every 30 minutes.

    ... and there seems to be a lot of excitement around the fois gras or goose liver pate. Sunrise is around 8 am and sunset is 7:30. Life starts slowly as we wake with the sun and drink coffee or tea to take off the chill.

    ... discovered by a young boy chasing his dog who was chasing a rabbit. The rabbit and dog went down a hole so the boy followed. The cave was 17,000 years old and covered in 3 colored cave art. It had been sealed with 98% humidity for all that time and the art was pristine. Soon archeologists and eventually tourists were visiting the cave in huge numbers.
