The drive from Andorra to Toulouse was long and windy, and it rained, a lot, once we got down to lower levels. Just like the movies, sitting on a bus, leaning against the window, looking wistfully out, while the rain drops slide down the misty windows. If I looked down at all on the bus ride, I got sick, so I put Harry Potter on audio book, and listened and napped the whole way. It wasn’t raining by the time we got to Toulouse. It was very nice to have a big, white bed, after the little beds we had been sleeping on. They weren’t bad, and the studio rooms in Andorra were a great price, but nothing like getting back to a real bed.
We checked into the hotel, and then wandered the streets a bit.
We had dinner at La Capacio, which had absolutely amazing fresh pasta. I had 4 cheeses tortellini, one of the best fresh pasta dishes I’ve had, amazing sauce. The boys had fois gras sauce on theirs.
Dale and I went to the Space museum! It was a bus ride out of the way, but it was pretty cool. They had lots of real size models of space ships, and lots of exhibits, and a couple of movie theatres.
Dinner was at Pizzeria Bambino, and they had lovely pizzas. Alastair had steak tartare, his favourite, and it was huge!
It rained after dinner, which was sad, but we found haagen dazs for dessert, which was yum.
We woke, and went to the local market, for fresh breakfast food: bread, cheese, and tartes. We left our bags at the hotel, and spent the day biking around, looking at churches and bridges, and just generally exploring town.
