Sunny in Mirepoix

Many days I can’t go on adventures because I have to teach in the afternoon, but the Chinese New Year holidays provides me with some free time. 
Earl and I took advantage of a sunny day and drove to Mirepoix, a medieval village with a huge market on Mondays. 

There’s a cathedral and a piercing blue sky. You can see the canopies over the vendors, although I think many of them would have preferred to feel the warm sunshine. 

Once the market packed up, the business of lunching got under way. 

Aren’t these timbered buildings amazing? 

And on the drive home, we got a terrific view of the Pyrenees.

Beautiful. I love timbered buildings, I have seen a lot in Champagne, Burgundy, and also in Strasbourg.
May I ask, where are you teaching? I assume you teach English?

Emma, Yes, I teach English to Chinese children at VIPKids. It's a lot of fun, but the schedule is harder from the States, where the classes are from 5-9 a.m. In France, the classes are from 11-3. Here's my referral code in case you want to give it a try. https://t.vipkid.com.cn/mkt/landing/personal?referralToken=5470f68d8459a36a15548c8f3c751108&refereeId=15026485

It's about $10 per class, so $20 per hour.

I've been loving your France pics and stories, even though I don't always have time to comment thoughtfully. Just wanted to let you know that I'm here, reading with interest :-)

I've also been running a new photography meme on Thursdays ('cause I don't have enough on my plate already!) that you might be interested in joining in sometimes - https://thejourney.com.au/tag/thursday-travels/
