Figeac, the Prayssac monkey & varia

Up to now one of the best loved places by our visitors is Figeac, the city of Champollion, the decipherer of the Egyptian hieroglyphs, known for the Rosetta stone.

Some impressions :

The best loved dessert this summer so far: tarte aux pruneaux d'Agen, trempés dans du thé noir, à sa mousse.

As Ine seems to say: yami yami miam miam.

We all know the gnome mania in some gardens but as can be seen in Prayssac nowadays this phenomenon could be over: the gnomes are being taken over by the monkeys.

To be continued.

Some nice notes on buildings:
the first one excells in coherence (sic!) and the second is a good try to sell more.

And to finish with the best quote of the week, out of the mouth of a little girl, called Juliette:

Says she to her dad:

"Les vacances c'est pour se baigner, parce qu'il n'y a pas de piscine au travail."

Who could have said it better? Very logical indeed and wonderfully found if you want to stay at the bed & breakfast and swim all day whereas your parents want to take you away to visit some places you don't want to see.

Thx to Kwinten & Co and Dominique & Loic for the pictures.
