The Saillac Series: Post One
Being away from Aveyron for the summer makes posting about the area more challenging. I've brought a lot of photos with me to the USA , but I'm suffering from a lack of context.
Maybe it's time to go back to some other places that are equally important in my French life.
One is Saillac, a tiny village in the Corrèze department, not far from Martel in the Lot.
We have close friends there, and the area has been one of my family's vacation havens for the past seven years or so. One of my favorite photos on this blog was taken there on a crisp winter morning.
Another was less complimentary, and elicited a few squawks from my friends --and rightly so, for Saillac is a far more charming place than this photo implies.
Over the next few weeks, discover some frosty photos of winter in Saillac -- another intriguing corner of La France Profonde.
