So, all 3 pilgrims where together again. We met in Germany. Amazing, after making around 800 km in France, each following his rhythm, one takes a day off, the other 2 days, but we are still together. I have the impression, that those friendships will last for a very long time.

Together we arrived in La Souterraine. Here we met a Dutch couple, which we met before in the Castle of Sarzay. I will stay 2 days in La Souterraine couchsurfing, Bernd takes the direct way to Limoges, Albert takes the historical track.

So, i left La Souterraine about 4:30 pm, coz my host lives a in the next small village. Having reached more than the half, a car stopped beside me. I couldnt insist, my Wheelie was in the car. After a moment we were at Phillipes splendid house.

Phillipe is a excellent host, we ate really well, with beer, wine, cheese and liquor, he told me about his trips to the near east, maghreb, turkey or all the other visits he did with his Jeep, Motorbike or hiking. Of course it got very late, but very interessting. Thx Phillipe!!
This morning after having a delicious breakfast, we did some computer work. Like this i could deliver some news about me. After Lunch, Phillipe took me to a sightseeing trip in his car. We visited the Church, other important buildings in town, and even a 98 years old artist, making skulptures out of stone or wood.
On the way back we stopped to visit the (rebuilt) ruins of a Fortress. Around were gardens with the species of the middle age.
