Visiting France

We visited a castle today, Meung Sur Loire, and we visited the dungeon where people would be shoved down there among the rotting corpses.  It would be have been quite depressing and certainly no way out. The smell had to be pretty depressing as well. I doubt the food was refreshing. No strawberries either. We also visited the bathing room, the kitchen and the bedrooms, altogether an extremely fine castle.  We even went into the attic and servants’ quarters.  We had a lovely lunch with Kir Royale. The smell coming out of the dungeons would have been nasty back in the day, but then the whole castle had a moat which probably smelled bad.   If you were a serf, you lived with your chickens and pigs. When Mark and I were in Santa Barbara in April, we met a couple walking with their pet pig and they said the pig slept between them.  You can take people out of the pig pen but some people move on and bring pigs with them. This part of France is very beautiful and Darlene is the perfect hostess.
