Note from the Ariège/Hers

We’ve had a few busy days exploring the Ariège/Hers region. We’ve climbed many, many spiral staircases up towers—always corkscrewing to the right: apparently built that way to disadvantage attackers, who most likely would be right handed and therefore unable to maneuver swords effectively around the tight bends—slipped up and down rain-slicked cobble streets, gazed out at rolling, wooded foothills, and eaten both good and not-so-good meals.
