In the Afternoon, we went toMillau to see one of the tallest bridge in the world and won the 2006 IABSE Outstanding Structure Award.
It was raining and we have a wet snow rain but its can't stay longer. Once its touch the surface its melting. The temperature was 2.5 degrees. My husband stopped the car and show Hakim the snow melted on his hand.

Raining day in South France.

I tried to snap the snow, but, it was too quick to melt.

We almost there.

Fact about this bridge:
The Millau Viaduct is an enormous cable-stayed bridge that spans the valley of the river Tarn near Millau in Southern France. Designed by the French structural engineer Micheal Virlogeux and British architect Norman Foster. It is the tallest bridge in the world, with one mast's summit at 343.0 meters (1,125 ft)- slightly taller than the Eiffel Tower and only 37m (121 ft) shorter than the Empire State Building.

Driving on the bridge.

On the way back, we have stopped by at the pizzaria for our dinner and that was our 3rd day of this week.

The 4th day, visited Rocamadour - famous with the historical monuments and its sanctuary of the Blessed Virgin Mary which for centuries has attracted pilgrims from every country, among them kings, bishops, and nobles.

The Train we followed to the small town which from there you have to use stairs or elevator to the old church.
