Second day in Carcassonne, the weather hadn’t picked up yet, so it was still cloudy. In the morning, we started off with a nice breakfast at La Rapière (Pain au chocolat with a hot chocolate/coffee) and then decided to explore as much of the old city as possible, trying going around the outer walls and exploring every street. The medieval city is beautiful from anywhere, and there’s a surprising amount to see.
As it was a bit wet, we decided to look at one of the indoor museums: Musée de l’Inquisition, which was mostly lots of very savage looking torture devices that were used on “heretics”. We had a lunch at a larger-on-the-inside palace, although I can’t quite remember what we had, but we tried a drink called diabolo which is like a strawberry lemonade that tastes really nice (I’ve recently found out that it was Grenadine and lemonade).
After lunch, we went to explore the new city, pottered around a few shops, walked down a street covered by lots of umbrellas (didn’t get a picture for some reason, but there will be one on day 5) and went into a very dodgy looking supermarket which had a bar at the front, before getting some pizzas and Milka with Dime at a more major looking supermaket.
