The Dordogne

Ah, the Dordogne... Rambling river and ruined châteaux... Cro Magnon cave paintings and pâté de foie gras... Need say more?
Images below include Beynac, Puy l'Eveque, Monpazier, the ruined Château Commarque, Castelnaud (a really groovy château with great views and an excellent museum of armaments from the Middle Ages), Saint-Cirq-la-Popie (designated one of France's many Official Most Beautiful Villages), and Sarlat-la-Canéda, a most pleasant place to dine on a summer evening.
