After breakfast, we walked around the outdoor market. The weather was a bit drizzly, but it was quite warm,
In the city centre, there are many pedestrian streets with shops and restaurants.
Always good advertising to be had in France!
We found a nice bakery with some serious breads and pastries in the window.
We were having such a great time, that it was very surprising when Nancy suddenly announced it was 11 a.m. (as in check-out time at the hotel). We scurried back, grabbed our bags, and waited while the hotel called a cab for us (announcing to the operator that we had "beaucoup de baggage"). From the hotel, we went back to the airport to pick up our rental car, which is a black Peugeot with a very cool giant moon roof covering the entire top. Nancy is the driver, and I'm signed on as a "back-up." She did an excellent job of getting us to Carcassonne, which is about an hour south of Toulouse, and to our home for the next week, the lovely Maison Juliette.
