A Very Enjoyable Exchange!We picked up Brigitte at the train station in DC after her visit with her son in NYC. She was delightful and we enjoyed meeting her and exchanging information. She speaks English very well. We left the next day for Toulouse, France, and easily found her car at the airport when we arrived. There was lots to do and plenty of information - actually overwhelming. The only problem was that Europe was experiencing a heat wave, and we had three weeks of sunny weather with no rain and temperatures creeping up to the high 90's. Although the house did not have air conditioning, it stayed cool inside with the blinds closed during the day and the windows opened at night. We especially enjoyed seeing fields of blooming sunflowers everywhere, learning about the pink garlic of Lautrec, and visiting many medieval sights. We also drove to the Mediterranean and spent a few days there in the fishing village of Sete. All is all, it was a memorable trip and we highly recommend it.
