Je le sais très très bien !
With one resolve satisfied, mais avec les cheveux encore humides, it was now time to investigate la Cathédrale and to re-live the experiences that Marie had enjoyed there, so many months ago.
Here, in the middle ages, it was "Occitan" that was spoken, (ou langue d’oc ), so you can see where the name of la région Languedoc-Roussillon has come from. Just read the sign above. Perhaps Marie will translate it for us; it's not really too difficult.
We spent a wonderful hour enjoying this lovely old Romanesque church - in the Southern-France warmth, that Marie and her fellow Montpelliérains had given us.
Maybe you can see from these photos and of course, from those to come, how France, bewitches and enchants the Aussie mind ?
Perhaps this will never be erased.
Je le sais très, très bien !
