We took the TVG bullet train from Paris to Toulouse - about 5 hours. Very fast, clean and fun. We could see the Pyrennes in the distance. On to Rodez and to the McGraws friend, Christine. Great French dinner about 28 dollars each, 2 hours long, 6 courses. Out about 10:30 PM.
Sorry - I am using q French computer keyboard (way different) y'ebkbzdbqzhz

On our 1st day in Rodez we visited a very old church & village in the mountains.
On the 2nd day we visited Christines papa, age 93. Another 6 course dinner at his home, lots of wine! What a wonderful person and beautiful day. Late in the PM we went to Albi and its huge and brick exterior and 3 dimensionally painted walls and blue ceiling. This is the home of Toulouse Latrauec and we visited his museum.

Now we have taken the train to Sete - on the sea. We are within walking distance to the sea. We met a wonderful old man, Yve. HE must have been about 100 years old just kidding, he must have been in his late 70s. He bought us a bottle of wine with our supper!!

We met a lady from Perth, Austraila, who gave us a map that her and her husband have researched @ published of WWII & Normandy area, which is where we are headed tomorrow.
We are stq(the Q is an A on French keyboard)ying until May 7 up north.

On 7th, 8th and 9th we will be at this Paris hotel - 01 47 70 34 34 (tele)

It has been difficult to find time to find internet services and we are just having too good of a time.

We hope all is well in USA.
