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?

Our attempts to go around it all by taking a side street were to no avail, as we found ourselves back in the middle of it all again - just approaching it from a different direction!
