tea at last..

...with an elephant teapot

We discovered that the local area was marketed as the "Medieval Valley" and there was a touring map to see the many churches/abbeys/castles etc. We quite happily followed along and on the first day stumbled on this market in the town of Dropt. We had a great time absorbing the sights and smells and stocked up for the week ahead. We then went to lunch at a little restaurant just out of town run by an English couple,but with a French chef. Foie gras! Apparently the locals come from all around to eat just for this. Spent the afternoon happily wandering from village to abbey to cloister before allowing ourselves tea and patisseries on the way home.
