07-11 Uzerche to Montignac and to Sarlat (Friday, July 11, 2014)


July 11, Friday

Hour by Hour

[16 vs. 8]

We woke up around 10am in Uzerche

Started driving to Montignac.  Our car is OK.  It was parked in a super-narrow spot, but somehow – no scratches on the sides.

12:00 We paid toll €3.10 cash

13:32 We bought tickets (MC €19.80)  for a 15:30 English tour for Lascoux II cave

 

07-11 13:32 - Montignac - Ticket to the caves 07-11 En Aparte on the map of Montignac
Touristy Tricks: to make you to stop in the city, tickets are ONLY sold in Office de Tourisme de Montignac.  There are NO tickets at the caves. Montignac has one main street (Rue du 4-Septembre), and caves are a little over a mile from the center

14:00 We ate outside (à l’extérieur) at Montignac restaurant called En Aparte (MC €28) Salad and Quiche – Many thanks for the warm reception!

If you want raw – you got it! This place just opened up this year, and it represents a new wave and a new trend If you want healthy – you got it!

 

 

While eating I made a reservation on Booking.com at a Sarlat hotel – technology rules!

We drove back to Lascaux II for a tour

 

Very interesting English tour with lots of questions: what is the reason for paintings on the walls of caves that were not inhabited?

Why they did not draw people? Not a single person in the entire cave?  Who said that people draw these? TEXT 02 TEXT 03

 

Pictures inside the caves– iPhone is very forgiving for low light

Started driving to Sarlat (15 miles = 24 km)

Sun is almost out for the first time in days – very pleasant

17:30 Found free parking and checked into the hotel (pay later)

Sarlat main square – Place de la Liberté – this is a must photo shut with a bronze boy 3 r Jean Jaures.  Less visited street, but even more spectacular décor Lanterne des Morts – An exact purpose is unknown..  This could be either flashlight of dead, or flashlight of Moors
