"The locals are proud of their patriomonie," I said to Rick.
It's true the locals celebrate their history.
We were at the Hostalet café over looking La Place de la Republique and enjoying the breeze after a too-hot day when a truck full of chairs pulled up. We knew no dance was scheduled.
We weren't sure what was happening, but Rick helped local historian Jean-Marc set up the chairs.
Many locals showed up to listen to a talk and slide show about the archaeological findings in the area going back to BC times.
Any village this proud of a heritage is a place that I'm proud to spend time even if it isn't my patrimonie.
