The farm cat spent pretty much the entire week with us. Finian loved it.
It was very fun. We went to a castle called Castelnaud, the most famous cave in the world Lascaux II, another cave Grotte de Rouffignac. Also we had a day doing a hike and staying home to play rugby. We went to a market in Sarlat and visited a church tower that was fun.
La Roque Saint-Christophe had lots of models of what it might look like when people lived there. One model was about people fighting bears. Two other models were of the cliff town that was there. Three more were of machines that they used and one machine for pulling.
When we were at home a day, we went for a hike and hollowed out a log. The hike lead us to a grassy field and through a forest. Then Connell and I had a match of rugby. I won 45-3.
When we were at La Grotte de Rouffignac, we went down a train into a cave. There were cave paintings of woolly mammoths, plus horses, deers and bulls. Then we took the train out again. There were pictures of woolly mammoths on the way.
When we were at the town of Sarlat, we saw a market and bought fruit and wild boar sausages. We saw truffles in oil. Me and Mom and Dad tasted cheese with truffle in it. It was yummy. And we went to a single church tower with no church connected. There was a grassy area around it.
Fiacra has become a little obsessed with truffles, not to eat but to sell. In fact the purpose of one hike was to find an oak tree and dig for truffles, too early in the season unfortunately.
