Castelnau-Montratier to Toulouse
From Castelnau-Montratier we headed south. In the late afternoon we reached a forest, and decided it would be a good place to camp. We waited around for it to get dark, writing postcards and reading our books. It was a warm afternoon, with blue sky above us. As we sat we thought we heard thunder from the west. Then it was all around us, but still sunny overhead. We pitched our tent and waited for the rain. Despite all of the thunder and lightening;=, it only rained lightly for half an hour. We went to bed with the tent doors open. At 2am, it started pouring!
We arrived in Toulouse around noon, and spent the afternoon exploring the city. We got our “pilgrim’s passports” stamped at the cathedral and watched unicyclists doing tricks in the main square. We like Toulouse, it has a very New-York-West-Villagy-feel.
