Rain, rain, go away

IPouring rain all day, luckily today is a driving day from Amboise in the Loire Valley down to Sarlat in the Dordogne.  The Dordogne River Valley was called the Perigord during the Hundred Years War, the river separated Btirain nd France.The roads have been easy to drive, the highways and terrain much like Wisconsin.  Driving through small villages, the roads are narrow but free of heavy traffic.  Matter of fact, some of the towns look like they are uninhabited, as there is no sign of people! We often wonder where everyone is hiding, behind their closed shutters we are told. The small towns are full of round abouts.  We find the navigation system in the car to be very useful and probably wouldn't be able to find some of these b&b's without it. 

We arrive in Sarlat around 6 and are greeted by a very friendly British couple, Wendy and David at the b&b Le Jardin. They are originally from York, came here on vacation, liked it so much they stayed. We are only 5min away from the old towne and enjoy local Bergerac white wine with foie gras and duck filet wrapped in a flaky wrapper at L'Adresse.
I am enchanted by the young server hostess, who has a beautiful smile and black curly hair. I am calling her Simone in this blog as she feels like a Simone.
