We left the Pyrenees and drove back to souillac (stopping only for a vital rest stop in Toulouse. O gee, have we stopped right next to the main shopping street? Are there massive sales on? Wow, how co-incidental ) The French motor ways are great, fast and ordered. 130 kmh in the dry and 110 in the rain. Although in hindsight if we didn't have to stop at so many toll booths the extra 30kph might have helped. Some toll booths are a fixed ...

Standing in La Roque-Gageac we could see three castles that were involved in the French 100 year ...

A bit of a slow start as we negotiated a number of smaller roads, and then, as we entered a small town, we found ourselves in the middle of market day! Why they had not blocked off the main street we have no idea, but there was only one way to go and that was straight ahead... market stalls closing in on both sides and people everywhere.
