My French cousin, François, recently sent me these pictures of Carcassone in the snow.
Carcassone is a fortified medieval town in the south of France that has been occupied by man since the 6th century B.C.
Kim and I visited Carcassone in 2006:
Lucky for us it was late September and there was no snow. We were rained on a bit, but there's not much that can dampen such a sight as this city provides.
Carcassone is where I had my first taste of cassoulet.
Here I am with my cousin and four of his seven children.
