Kathryn and I arrived a few minutes early our first day of classes. This is the view from the patio where many of us gather during the morning breaks.
The street below the patio is Rue St. Guilhem, a busy shopping area with limited access to motor vehicles. Guilhem is the word for William in Occitan, the language spoken in this part of France before French became the standard.
In the photo, there are few people out and about. By 10 am it’s an altogether different story.
