The age of the buildings in France was significantly older than in North Carolina. Many were built from stone and appeared to be over 300 to 500 years old. NC has only been around for 300 years and I don’t believe there is a building in the State that is that old. Obviously France built to last.
Over the holidays, the Segal family journeyed to France to visit with our oldest daughter Annie. Annie teaches English at a French high school near Montrejeau (population approximately 2700), which is in the foothills of the Pyrenees Mountains in southwest France. The nearest large city is Toulouse (population 440,000, fourth largest city in France) which is the home of Airbus.
