We checked out of Sarlat and hit the trail for Carcassone. A bus ride and then a two hour train ride through the lush countryside of southern France. There are fields of corn (for the animals), sunflowers, hay and orchards and many gardens along the way. We are as close to Spain as we will get and the Spanish influence is seen in the food such as paella. We enjoyed the fortress after dark and a hearty meal of cassoulet with sausage. Yum!
