Odds and Ends

This will be the last post from the Dordogne trip. Just a few more images from Collonges in Corrèze. It's basically become a tourist town, although not in the same vein as Sarlat. Many fewer people, shops, everything. There are a number of artists who've called the place home for 15 or 20 years now, and a few eateries, like this one (right) offering sandwiches.

And, finally, in honor of our visiting friend Cheryl who is an avid birder and collector of owl images:


  1. How lovely to read about Collonges-le-Rouge! We have great friends who live in Saillac just a few kilometres away, so this area is something of a home away from home for me.

  2. Thanks, bc. This was our second time in Collonges and it was as much a pleasure this time as the last (about 15 years ago?).

  3. Un sandwich au foie gras, please ;-) ! Pour 5 euros, c'est une bonne affaire si le foie est bon :-)

    Connais-tu cette comptine qu'on apprend gamin en France :

    - "Il était une fois

    Il était une fois,
    Une marchande de foie,
    Qui vendait du foie,
    Dans la ville de Foix...
    Elle se dit ma foi,
    C'est la première fois
    Et la dernière fois,
    Que je vends du foie,
    Dans la ville de Foix."

    Sur ce, foi de Marie, il est temps d'aller préparer le dîner pour mon Homme :-) Bises. Marie


Pour your heart out! I'm listening.
