The South of France is hot hot hot.

Finally after a mammoth 2 days drive we arrived at our friends Sally and John's in the South of France north of Toulouse.
It's so incredibly beautiful so I had to put up LOTS of photos. Here is the usual thing of the view out our window. So sunny and so HOT. The hottest I've ever been in the Northern hemisphere. It was 37 yesterday and 34 today. Great for siestas and cold beer.
This is at a café nearby at a place called Saint Antonin Noble Val a very beautiful medieval town where there was a market on. So many people and a lot more English than we are used to in the Loire. It's funny how you all skirt 'round one another pretending you're as French as the next person and hope they don't hear you ordering your breakfast.
Ricardo savouring his first French coffee.
Incredibly healthy basil, taller than I've ever seen.
Sally cooked some of these zucchini flowers for dinner stuffed with fresh goats cheese. Mmmmm
The camera has done something weird here and made us all look really fat. Never mind it's bound to happen sooner or later with all the gormandising we've been doing.
Au ciel d'été.
We saw this strange display at a Brocante. Not sure if it was to be eaten or not.
At last Ricardo has relaxed and is on holiday. It's a wonderful thing to behold.

Hey Mard, wish you were here this part of the country has your name on it and I haven't been this hot since your wedding.
