A Dusk Walk in MontpellierWe headed out on an evening walk with our wonderful hosts in Montpellier, France. They've done a few nice things to the city to minimize car traffic. There is a lot of public transport on light rails, and that tended to keep congestion down. You don't really realize it until you compare it to someplace like Milan or Daegu, but there just aren't a lot of cars driving around all the most interesting places. Taking the "back way" to dinner, we stopped at this perfect little intersection so I could take a quick photo. It was a highly recommended spot by my friend Jacques. This is the Cathédrale Saint-Pierre de Montpellier an elegant and unique cathedral that has a castle-like feel to the facade. Since I always get excited when I see a castle, this got a big thumbs up! - Trey Ratcliff Read more here at the Stuck in Customs blog.
