We headed back to Toulouse after a few hours, taking the “D” route instead of the freeway for one last pass thru the French countryside. Although the weather was still overcast, the scenery was enjoyable.
Outside of town we stopped at a car wash to clean three weeks of road dirt and bugs off the BMW. The bike performed well in spite of my discomfort with the handle bars and our earlier electrical problems. We probably logged somewhere around 6,000 km during our journey
Returning to home base, we cleaned up around the house and packed up all our gear and clothes. We somehow managed to find room for all the goodies acquired during our many market explorations.
Because of the language barrier and the road construction in front, we decided to take a cab that evening to an airport hotel for the night rather than risk trying to get a cab to show up at 5:00 am on a Saturday.
We checked into the hotel with our pile of luggage and a box of stuff for Debbie and Guenther (that couldn't fit on their bike) and spent the evening relaxing. We enjoyed the last of our wonderful French bread, cheese and fruit for dinner, along with our last bottle of wine from the region. We had a gorgeous crimson and purple sunset to end the day and our great adventure in the south of France.
