In the morning we went back to the aiport to pick up our car, then headed in to Toulouse. As it was Sunday, everything was closed. We had a tough time even finding a boulangerie (bakery) that was open to get some breakfast! After driving up and down the main road about 27 times, we made our way out of town and headed for our villa.
Along the way we made a couple of stops, and arrived at the villa at 5pm to meet our hosts. The villa is really nice, it has 2 big bedrooms, separate rooms for the bath tub and the toilet, a nice little patio overlooking the river, fully equipped kitchen, and of course a computer!
For dinner we drove to a nearby town called Espereza, the only place that had somewhere open to get food! It was a great little pizza restaurant run by the sweetest man and the food was great. After it was only about 9pm, but we were all exhausted so went home and crashed early.
The weather has been really cold so far, about 4-5 degrees. Lisa and Dave are finding it shocking having spent the last 6 weeks in hot weather. I am finding it pretty cold myself! The sad thing is it was 16 the day before we got here. So, hopefully it will warm up again soon.
