This kitten made my morning yesterday in Les Eyzies
Chasing his tail and playing
After that we visited a PreHistoric Parc, with replicas of scenes from the daily life of Cro Magnon man. I jumped into one of the dioramas to defend this poor wooly mammoth (sorry, blurry pic–John is good at putting together bikes, not so good at framing and focusing photos).
The parc was a cool way to interact with a distant time period, and it was blissfully uncrowded. Plus, there were kittens there too:
Then there were random magnificent chateaux sightings, like this one along the Vezere river
Grey skies and wet conditions this morning in Montignac. A good day to visit nearby Lascaux II, the replica of the famous prehistoric caves. The real site can no longer be visited because, surprise surprise, they were becoming degraded by human presence. I learned at the PreHistoric Parc yesterday that Cro Magnon man “gave nothing to his environment–he exploited it for his use.” Definitely our ancestor.
After Lascaux we push on in rain gear. A bientot….without proper accents until I can figure out how to add them in WordPress!
