|Cite medieval, Carcassonne|
Then in for the traffic jam at Carcasonne. It's another small town with loads of traffic. Dinner is salad, pizza, more duck.
In the morning got a jog in, down to the medieval town. We all wander around. John goes to the museum and ramparts.
|Avignon Palais des Papes|
In the afternoon, rushing along, we get to Pont du Gard, then a night next to the freeway outside Avignon in a micro hotel, pretty bad.
Today we went to the Avignon town centre, so John could visit the Palais des Papes. This used to be the seat of the popes for some time. They lived an unimaginably lavish lifestyle, frescoes on the ceilings, basements full of gold, towers the size of a huge living room, just to smoke meats.
