Flag of France  , Midi-Pyrénées,
Wednesday, August 29, 2007

After a few days, I decided to check out the larger city of Toulouse, and was rewarded with an engaging, cosmopolitan city with a decidedly country flair. Toulouse is on the route for pilgrims along the Santiago de Compostella, and its architecture reflects the glory of heavenly inspiration. Fantastic arches rising to almost unbelievable heights make me gape and look like a hungry baby bird.  
Again, phenomenal food - the homemade chocolate mousse at lunch was to die for, a modern city with a university and home to the aeronautics industry in France, but with history under every step and with a unique, laid back feel. I enjoyed every sumptuous minute of traveling in this region.
