July 14 was Bastille Day and we went to Auch to see the local parade. They honored soldiers returning from Afganistan, local firefighters, police, and other dignitaries. Then we went to Le Chateau de Caumont. It was built in 1535 by a renound French architect in the Italian Paladian style. Henry IV slept there as a baby. Robin finally drove home from this chateau as it was a holiday and there was not much traffic. Driving a stick is like riding a bike .... except for the rotaries!
