Back from Albi

Had a pleasant drive across the Black Mountains (Montagnes Noires) yesterday after to arrive in Albi late afternoon. A quick heck-in at the hotel and we were off wandering around the old town. A very dark sky but no rain and quite warm in fact. We settled for an Italian restaurant next to the Cathedral Sainte Cecile.

Back at the hotel which has a roof terrace with a bar and restaurant. That proved very handy for a night cap overlooking the old town.

After breakfast, fairly early we went for another wander around town.

The objective being to visit the Cathedral yet again as it is a real wonder inside and one discovers something new every time.

After a quick coffee break, it is time to drive to the BMW dealer where we are expected. The formalities are simple, quick and efficient. The car is waiting for us, all ready and gleaming.

We raise a couple of questions on how to do this or do that… It has been a while since I have driven a BMW!!!

and we take turn driving home by yet another route which was a little bit longer but involved a short run on the motorway.

First impressions: Excellent ride, quiet and powerful if needed and I have not tried the Sport set-up yet… That will be for the roads in Brittany next week.
