We entered the Dordogne department today and noticed a change in the terrain to longer - but usually not steeper - ascents and descents. Lots of forested hillsides. We visited the charming town of Brantome. Its old centre is on an island in a curve of the river Dronne.

But the big news is that we finally got our pass sanitaire. It turned out that waiting patiently like a good Canuck was not the right tactic. The impatient Gallic tactic of submitting exactly the same information a second time led to us getting the passes in about 10 minutes.

So now we feel like full-fledged tourists and will be hanging out in cafes half the day, and poking into every museum the rest of the time, as well as having huge lunches & dinners in bistrots. Oh, right, we've got to spend 4 hours+ a day cycling...
