Pont Valentré. Cahors

Pont Valentré. Cahors, originally uploaded by Berni C..

I have great photos of this birdge that are my own but this computer won't let me upload them. Anyway we stayed at a little hotel in Cahors and when we got up yesterday morning it started to snow. Just enough to turn the ground white but it was cold and we had some concern about it making slopes slippery . The usual way out of Cahors is straight up a cliff face using steps that have been carved into the cliff. We chose to take a longer route out of town for safety sake which added a bit to the distance for the day.

As it turned out we opted for a short day, too cold and damp so we stopped at Hospitalet where we stayed at the Chambre et table d'hotes Les Tuileries very nice and comfortable and we had a good dinner and breakfast with the family.

Today we walked 20 KM on to Montcuq, for the non French speakers that translates to "My Ass", needless to say I had to buy postcards. We are staying in the Gite d'etape Le Souleillou which is nice and clean and comfortable and we are doing our own cooking for a change. Very interesting town with two old stone towers, we plan to do some looking around before we move on ion the morning.
