A full day to enjoy Carcassonne

This was the only day that the boat didnâ€™t move at all. With no schedule at all I was up at 9 and off to the baker for 4 croissants and a baguette. We walked once again to the CitĂ© where we spent most of the day. While we were in the basilica, we were treated to 5 male singers from Russia singing a cappella. Of course, I bought a CD; Iâ€™m a sucker for such things. We were disappointed by very slow and impolite service for lunch. Maybe itâ€™s something about tourist towns that creates the condition. Afterwards we spent some enjoyable time touring the castle and ramparts. Itâ€™s interesting that you can walk on the walls here; in the US the lawyers would go crazy! Of course, others would make a fortune in representing the idiots who chose to fall off.
Weâ€™d seen some nifty ceramic house numbers as we entered the walled city and we need some for the cottage since we just got an honest-to-goodness â€śstreetâ€ť address after owning the place for almost 40 years.
