    Americans and Dutchmen

    Day 32 –

    So, I totally invited myself to walk with the two Dutch men,
    who agreed to take me along, warning me that they walk quickly and far. I proudly
    said, “Don’t worry, I walk quickly too!” I have now changed my mind. They walk
    quickly, and I do not. It was a real challenge keeping up with them. It’s like
    running while still walking. It was also very hot today, and it was a real
    challenge keeping up ...

    ... and ate almost nothing.

    My companions and I left the lodgings together, and I planned to walk with them until we were well outside of the town. My guide book is not very helpful in big cities, as it does not give street names. I’m not sure that I would have been able to find my way out without some help. Limoges is a very large city (for France).

    We walked for 7km before we were finally out of the city and its suburbs. I walked ...

    ... I went straight to the cathedral.

    Now, in my personal opinion, the inside of the cathedral does not come close to rivaling the cathedral of Bourges, but the fašade is amazing. Construction began in the 13th century and continued through the 19th c., but the fašade, is Gothic in all its glory. The sheer number of gargoyles gave me the chills in the best way possible. Inside, most of the remaining works are 19th century, but under the organ there ...

    ... into the walk, I was supposed to find a trail. I passed two likely trails, yet neither were marked. Where the markings would usually be, there were large signs pointing to a pilgrim refuge that was further along the road. When I met with my companions after the walk, they too said that they had not been able to find the trail. We all believe that the owners of the refuge moved the signs to encourage pilgrims to pass by their place. Which, I should note, was ridiculously expensive. It ...

    ... statue of Saint Goussaud and his hairy companion. The boar next to the statue is covered in pins. I cannot figure it out and the Englih restaurant proprietors had no idea. They told me that on Pentecost, the townspeople carried this statue to the Latern of the Dead in the cemetery, but they had no clue why. If anybody knows anything about this saint or the reason behind the strange pins, I’d be glad to know. Google wasn’t much help either. After ...
