Below: The church of Saint-Pierre de Bessuéjouls. Climbing some very narrow steps, you can visit the ancient (11th. c.) chapel in the belltower. Here is Ori with its 9th-century altar.

Below: By this point, we were out of the Aubrac and into the region of the Lot. There was a lot more shade, and it became obvious how altitude affects the arrival of spring (we skipped ahead two weeks simply by descending a few hundred meters). We even saw wild orchids growing along the side of the path.

Below: We stayed at a “holiday village” in Golinhac, with all of us in one big cottage that had various bedrooms, a communal kitchen, and shared bathroom facilities. We all went out for a communal dinner at the only restaurant in town. Ori was proud to be the only female there!
