From dawn to noon a steady and hard rain precipitated upon us. 
Thus, the morning part of the biking turned out to be very very wet. 
This is how I felt after hours in the rain.
We slowly worked our way along the Dordogne ...
 ... and eventually ascended a long and very steep hill ...
to Château des Milandes, the castle once owned by Josephine Baker.
She was an unusual US/French entertainer from 1925 to 1975.
Miss Baker's way to fame was a beautiful voice, a great humour and an exotic nudity.
Josephine Baker as the hostess in the castle's dining room.
In Paris in the late 1920's the codex about ethnicity was very 'liberal'.
After Les Milandes we descended and proceeded in beautiful sunshine along the Dordogne with grand castles and perched villages seemingly everywhere.
Château Beynac from the 12th-13th centuries.

Château de Castelnaud.
La Roque-Gageac squeezed between the rocks and the river. 

Today we've seen a lot of beautiful and lush landscape. This region has so much to offer the inhabitants as well as the visitors.
We are now in Sarlat-la-Canéda, and will stay here for two nights. Sarlat has a large and superbly preserved medieval downtown area where we took an evening stroll before going to bed.
