Today we went to the market in Auch and had lunch at a sidewalk cafe and then to Cassaigne (close to Condom) where they make the Armangnac. It is the only place that Armangnac is made. It ages for quite a long while (20-40 years) and tastes kind of like brandy. Cassaigne was constructed in 1247 and was a castle like structure that was used by the Bishop. Brave Shirley drove home on the narrowest road yet. The cars are pretty much all standard here. So Sev has been driving most of the time. Shirley drives 'old blue' at the ranch so she tackeled it yesterday too. I have not driven yet as the last time I remember driving a stick shift was in 1985 and the roads are curvy, hilly, one lane roads for cars going both ways .... as well as there are rotaries (circle entries) at every village.

We returned to the start of Bastille Day celebrations at the church by the villa. The village is gathered for wine, food, and a traditional french choir.
