Today's episode is an episode with Elyse Rivin about the town of Lavaur in Occitanie. Elyse and I went in September, and you know what? It's a cute small city of abour 11,000 inhabitants. We had a great time. It's a lovely town that attracts a lot of people who look to live in quiet area not too far from a major city.

Lavaur makes for a lovely day trip from Toulouse because it's only 45 kilometers away from Toulouse. And you can get there by train as well!

One of the things that is surprising about the Saint Alain church in Lavaur is that there is a "jacquemart" on top. A Jacquemart is a bellstriker statue and they are common in the northeast of France, but not in the Toulouse area.
