English

02-Sep-2011 -- En route pour la cité épiscopale d'Albi, nous faisons un petit crochet par le point de confluence 44N 2E. Facile d'accès, il se situe dans un champ à une centaine de mètres de la route qui mène à la ferme de la Salissière, près de Noailles. Le champ est nu mais aux alentours se trouvent des plantations de tournesol et de luzerne.

Nous poursuivons ensuite notre route vers Albi, où nous ne manquerons pas de découvrir les charmes des ses vieilles ruelles, la cathédrale Sainte-Cécile, le cloître de la collégiale Saint-Salvi et le palais de la Berbie, qui abrite le musée Toulouse-Lautrec.

02-Sep-2011 -- On our way to the cathedral city of Albi we made a detour to the Confluence Point 44N 2E. Easily accessible, it's situated in a field around a hundred metres from the road to Salissiere farm, near Noailles. The field is bare, but around it one finds fields planted with sunflowers and alfalfa.

We then continued on our way to Albi, where we discovered the charms of this town's old streets, the Cathedral of St Cecile, the cloister of the collegiate church of St Salvi, and the Bishops' Palace, which houses the Toulouse-Lautrec museum.
