St. Cirq-Lapopie. She's doing an artist-in-residency program at Maisons Daura for 8 weeks and it was fun to hear about her project. She's a writer and is writing a novella about the her vision of the Lot Valley in some futurist time with water being the underlying theme of the story. We ate at Le Cantou and lunch was very tasty. I was surprised that the village is starting to gear up for the tourist season...lots of people already wandering the steep rues of the village. And it cost 4 euros to park even in the lower parking area where you still have to climb 850 meters to get up to the village! Good thing that in spite of being steep, the hike is very pleasant.
