A Castle in Carcassone

How often do you get the chance to stay within the walls of an ancient city?  And because this is the off-off-off season, when we awoke this morning and went out looking for a place to get a cup of coffee, we couldn’t find one.  But then, we also couldn’t find a whole lot of tourists, either.  Which meant our amble along the cobbled street was very quiet.   I can imagine this place is a total tourist trap during the summer, but right now, it’s not so hard to consider what life would have been like when throwing boiling oil was considered a form of home protection.
