Toulouse - Day 10

We spent the whole day in Toulouse.
First was Victor Hugo's Market. The market was indoors and had seafood, butchers, sweets, cheese, lots of good stuff.

We ate croque-monsieur. Lots of cheese there.
Anchovy pizza. 
A really yummy sweet. Crepe filled with some kind of really good cream. It was really good.
Also caramelized sugar on top.
More photos from the market.

The cured meat here costs 199 euros a kilo. We bought 100 grams.
20 euros of cured meat. Not much, but you pay for quality. It was really good, but can't say it was worth the 20 euros.
We walked around the city and stopped by another market that was outdoors.

I bought some candied honey.
Right next to the market was a long street filled with people selling their stuff. Kinda like a garage sale, but it was in the street.
Most of the stuff looked like junk.

Some photos around Toulouse.

We ate lunch at a kabob place. Mayonnaise is just as common a sauce as ketchup when you order fries.

Walked through a large square and saw a bunch of people in costume. The costumes look pretty professional. We stuck around to see what this was about.
They were making an advertising video for a costume shop.

Got back to the hotel and ate at the only store open on the street. It was Sunday and most things were closed.
Since we brought only 2 carry-ons. We didn't have much room for things and Louie was running out of clean undies. I washed them in the sink and he dried them in a frying pan. We didn't have a blow drier and it was not recommended to microwave.
