|Le President September 2009|
Then I met Caroline, an English woman who reads my blog. She lives just across the river from Cajarc in Gaillac where she has a chambre d'hote and a small gite that she rents out. She offered me an English translation of French history book of this area done by a friend. We met here at Le President for coffee and a get-acquainted chat. It's only a partial history beginning with the Bronze Age and ending at 1443, but it's actually the portion that is the hardest to find information about. Not a lot of record keeping going on back then. And almost everything that is available is written in French, of course. I'm thrilled!
And you, too, will benefit from these 'finds.' Expect lots more blog posts about both ancient and modern history in and around the Lot.
