Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
We checked out Touloouse also, in detail, with several car trips there. A beautiful city, sweet feel in many ways, but the Canal du Midi is a vast ocean of tourist boats, with an hour or two wait at locks sometime, and very incompetent company. As well, there is only the single canal to play on. We prefer to run with the commercial guys- we're big enough to keep up, and they know what they are about, generally. little or no commercial traffic there- it's all a theme park for rentals. Here, there are three canals to choose from and five directions to go, and real traffic not far away.


Capitalism searches out the darkest corners of human potential, and mainlines them.
