This is Mazamet, the town we based out of on our extended spring break holiday. The first day we were there, there was a flower show.
Here are my parents. Mom bought dried lavender, that's what's in the bag.
After that, we went to Carcasonne
The next day to Castres
It was Monday, so everything was closed including the Goya museum, but we got to see the gardens:
But since it was all closed we headed to Minerve (where we loved and bought 6 bottles of the 4 euro wine!)
Then we had a day or two of chilling in Mazamet. We played cards and the neighborhood cats hung out.
Albi with it's incredible cathedral:
Full of delicately carved limestone:
And then back to Mazamet, home of a giant preying mantis.
