The question is, how do you leave such places that are so achingly enchanting?

The Solitary Walker said...

Only by knowing the next place will be equally as enchanting, Ruth...

I want to return there. Now.

George said...

Quintessentially France, "la France profonde," as they say. Oh how I would love to be there—today, tomorrow, forever!

The Solitary Walker said...

Yes, 'la belle France', George. However, just to balance things out a bit, at the end of my trip I took a train from Bordeaux to Paris, and the countryside seemed very dull indeed on that western side, particularly the stretch from Poitiers.
