This shop sells ballet things.
It's not really part of the tour, but the window display is so clever! They sent out a request for women to send in their pointe shoes. Each pair of shoes notes the name and age of the person who wore these ballet shoes. The ballerinas range in age from 14 to 88 years old!
And now the amazing architecture:
Home to a wealthy resident of the 16th Century
The brick wall around the inner courtyard is curved, not an easy task for bricklayers!
I think somewhere in that frieze there are lambs, rams, sheep!
One of only a few half-timbered structures left in Toulouse.
They were banned centuries ago because they burned so easily and took the neighbor's homes with them!
On the walking tour we only saw the outside, but I returned the next day and the inside is beautiful.
I have friends who are able to post everyday while on trips. I have no idea how they do it. This trip is so full of adventures that I can barely catch my breath, let along blog. Still I am committed to sharing the trip, so next post continues my rambles in Toulouse.
Thanks for coming along!
