Not a bad place, typical Ibis - no frills. Only real bum burner is that you have to manhandle your luggage up to your room from the basement carpark ...no lift. Bad building design.

Barcelona to Toulouse. It was pretty cool, nice big leather chairs, radio and

between 9:30 and 10:00. Dana and her friend Theresa (who is also doing this

... lived a few kilometres from Pau. They are very dear friends of a family we know. After asking a couple of people we found the house and once we explained who we were the elderly couple welcomed us like long lost friends! Only the gentleman spoke English, but the lovely woman kept telling us things, which her husband then interpreted. They then fussed over us, bringing out the dishes for our lunch, which included fois gras, then a lentil casserole, then cheeses, followed by ...

Oysters, mussels and goat cheese salad were delicious. Sorry I didn't take pictures. Fun times! Tomorrow we have day in Sete to go to market - should be interesting. Bonne Nuit!
