We then strolled back towards home, passing through a Tango dance exhibition and resisting the urge to show-off with our skills (*cough cough* - they are pretty rusty and have been retired since 2005). What else can I say? A great day in an endearing little town. Next stop - Brussels.
As we leave France, here are some thoughts.... 1. All the meals were really delicious: steak, roasted duck and chicken, and fries and salad with every meal. 2.
