A week of three halves. The first: Miserable, wet and depressing like the previous week with a mix of heavy rain and drizzle. The second: Sunny and warm with some clouds and temperatures in the highs 20s. The third: A cold lager in the square in Lalinde, watching one of the bands in the free annual Tradigourdines two-evening festival.

I looked up the ‘normal’ weather for the region last week and temperatures are supposed to have been in the 30-35C region for the whole of July. Those 10-15 degrees really make a difference.

Packing suggestion: A mixed bag, with stuff to keep you warm when cold, and other stuff to keep you cool when hot.
