In Ceret

Now in Ceret.Very close to Spanish border.Beautiful little town with great ambience.Was frequented by Picasso,Matisse and other painters in early part of last century and has a great museum featuring many of their paintings of the town.Town still alive not some tourist trap full of tat.Staying in tiny little hotel just off the main street.The owner does not speak hardly any English.My French really getting a workout.Drove up into the Pyrenees today.Car got bigger and roads got narrower- a few close calls.Visited some very well preserved medieval villages although most of the houses look abandoned.Took a few photos but most need work in Lightroom.Here are just a few from Ceret and surrounds taken today straight from the camera.
