Â Maurice and I made a quick trip into the country west of Provence called Aveyron. The people from this region who settled in Paris opened many of the original bistros there. The whole area is very interesting and we could have spent much more time there just looking at old castles of the Knights Templar but we did the best we could. At one time it took several hours to cross a valley thereÂ so this incredible bridge called the Viaduc du MillauÂ was built.The architectÂ was English and an expert in building with metals. It can be seen all over the area from long distances away. We stopped at several places to take photos, above, below and while crossing it. Alot of it is made of metal and watching a film on how it was made was really interesting. The tallest support beam is higher than the Eiffel Tower!
Here it is from a village quite a ways away.

Â What it looks like from the highway right before driving on it.

Â The area is full of quaint villages and incredible scenery and I’ll post more photos on that next time.
