Alex arrived on Thursday at the Bergerac "International" Airport: a funny little regional airport where get this - English is the main language (hard to believe I know).
The kids were really excited to receive another visitor and Alex did not disappoint them. We had a Confit de Carnard for dinner and stayed up late catching up on news and old times.
Friday was our big tourist day and we looped through Domme, checked out the village of Le Roque-Gageac with its medieval fort built high in the side of a cliff and headed to Beynac castle for lunch and a tour.
Friday night we reserved the Le Gaulois Auberge for dinner (we had the whole place to ourselves) and then headed into St. Cernin to check out the fête which had just started. We sent him packing on Saturday!!

I could try peddle the excuse that our computers have been switched off a fair bit owing to some bad thunderstorms. While this is true (our neighbour's computer was fried on Monday night) the real reason is that I have been lost in a book which I started on Sunday and only finished yesterday.
Such a pity about the Tuesday Tune-up - there is always next week.
