Vampire travels across Europe

Into the Pyrenees Orientales

Continuing on from Cevennes in chapter 7.

” That road led us through the south east and then, a blurred day or two later, up into the cooler mountains”.

What she is saying here is that they came down from the hills of Cevennes and travelled along the mediterranean shore line. This area is indeed baking hot and as spring moved into summer it would have been dry and clingy weather.

“I’ve been wanting to come back down here for year”.

“We were surprisingly close to Spain. This thought and the beautiful word Orientales – jolted me”

Yes indeed. The region here is Catalan France. A shared history with Barcelona and the people are different from those further north. In the hills you will see mimosa and to these hills came the refugees from the Spanish civil war. Altogether an exotic and tropical feel to the country.
