 Hope you can read it – not every day you read a sign like this. It says Henry IV was crowned here in 1594. Un peu d’histoire.

So strange with its two different towers, looming over the small town. Magnificent.

Last night – impossible as it is to believe, the noise got worse. The construction site left some sort of machine, a pump maybe, running on and off all night. Illegal, surely? Anyway, I am doing my best zen imitation. The sun is out! I’m drinking a beautiful cup of coffee and out into the day.
