This morning I was all keyed up for a travel day. It started out a little frustrating, took forever to find my seat on the train, but from then on it went very smoothly. Unfortunately I remained a bundle of nerves, that is until I got on the bus to Sarlat. All of the sudden I was feeling at home. We drove through hills and woods and passed little village after village. It reminded me of Skagit Valley, only instead of our old barns there are lots of old stone buildings.
Sarlat itself is a beautiful little medieval town. Tiny little streets and alleys straight out of Harry Potter. And guess what, even the french are relaxed and friendly here.
The only hiccup so far is the tour I was going to take has been cancelled. But I'm not giving up! I will find a way to see some castles!!!
The sketch was done during dinner tonight, the pigeons were waiting for us to finish so they could get to the crumbs.
