Lot-et-Garonne

This is a land of small farms

and country churches;

of plums and prunes

and sunflowers.

It was the dowry of Eleanor of Aquitaine

and the battlefield of the Hundred Years War.

Now it sleeps, undisturbed by tourism.

If you wander around a corner
you may find a tiny restaurant
in a medieval guardroom

which serves delicious galettes and cider.
