Around Montcabrier

We’ve spent the last three days exploring our immediate area and painting. Soon we will do a painting post, but for now here is a pictorial summary of our area.

Tonight was the weekly village market. Vendors set up at about 6 PM and the people began arriving from all over the countryside. This is a market where people come to eat. Tables were set up around the square and the vendors were selling much ready-to-eat food and drinks. A local musician provided guitar and vocals of pop songs from the last 50 years. I stopped to buy a couple of goat cheeses, but we didn’t dine at the market. Sally once again provided us with a wonderful meal.

The village fete begins tomorrow. Therefore, in addition to music outside our room tonight we expect to have loud music going on late for the next two nights. During the day there are childrens’ activities, food, games, and even a tractor pull! At night the music and dancing begin and go on until no one can stay awake. It should be quite a weekend.

About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.

    just discovering this posting. I am not sure that rock music under your windows and tractor pulling to boot would be the greatest attractions of the village! But one cannot stop progress!
    Am about to watch all of your recent postings. JP
