Day Twenty Four: Monpazier and Belves

Today was our last day traveling around as a foursome, so we hit up two towns we had yet to visit. First, we went to Monpazier, a typical bastide town, which basically means it is laid out in a grid pattern.

The girls enjoyed wandering around the alleys:

There was a big open area that one can imagine they use for markets, concerts, beheadings, and other such entertainment:

Next it was on to Belves, which is officialy one of "the most beautiful villages of France."

Although the town itself was charming enough, it was made even more beautiful by these colorful flags that hung everywhere and made a lovely sound in the breeze:

We stopped for lunch in Belves, and had our last meal out in France. Fittingly, it was delicious and with a stunning view:

Finally, we came home for the dance party, which is becoming a daily event. The girls are not yet aware of how embarrassing I am...I give them two years.

Later tonight, our wonderful hosts are coming over for a farewell cocktail. Tomorrow, Kenny is taking the girls out for a day of fun while I clean the house and get us packed. We leave for Geneva on Wednesday morning and will spend the night there. Our flight back to DC leaves Thursday at noon!
