This is a lovely quaint French guest house. Very central to everything and very quiet. A lovely little court yard to sit and chillax in

Woke early and caught a taxi to the train station. My train left Paris at 9.42 am and I arrived in Carcassonne at 5.15 pm. How come that tired me out?
Found where I was booked into (about a 5 min walk from the station) then went out, got some dinner.
I was back in my room by 8 pm and well asleep by 9.
Didn't wake up until 7.30 am!!! Not like me at all....bliss

... now lined with restaurants, and shops filled with souvenirs, others with tempting chocolates, nougat and local wines. We then walked down, across the river into the 'city centre'. Not sure whether it was because most shops were closed but the place didn't seem to have much 'heart', unlike other cities we have visited which have busy squares and shops. We had dinnner at the restaurant Adelaide, in the citadel. It was such good value for an ...
... green. (Nineteenth-century drinkers of absinthe used to refer to the green fairy that would appear once they had drunk enough.) Once the sugar burned out, we were able to try the drink. It tastes a lot like the pastis from yesterday (i.e., like licorice) but much nicer. Possibly because it's 55% alcohol!
I also bought a Kinder egg today (Hi, Yvonne!) and I haven't opened it yet. Let's see what I got inside. It's a ... sheep with a pinwheel! You've gotta love those fun-loving ...
