I finally made it to France. Brussels Airport is huge. I bought a day pass to the sky club and spent a long layover with a glass of wine, some cheese, and some olives. Flight delays because of thunderstorms. Marsha met me at the airport, we rode the bus into town and we checked into our hotel. Then we walked all over Toulouse. The river, Garonne, here is way above flood stage. We had a wonderful dinner. I finally had cassoulet! Also saw the candy van.
