I am still on the GR 652 (a variant) and I reach Agen on the carnival day :

 

 

The next step is the village of Moirax with its beautiful church, and its key :

 

Some surprises along the way:

 

When paths cross, it can be colorful:

 

Then it is the junction with the GR 65 (Le Puy - Santiago de Compostela), immediately I see pilgrims after 1 month of solitude,

I leave a little way to visit the medieval village of Larressingle.

 

I am in the Gers, a very agricultural department:

 

 

 

The Pyrenees as a backdrop, it's splendid:

 

 

 

The musical Gers peculiarity are the bandas, a modern fanfare, the resumed tunes are often contemporary musics, the atmosphere is warm.

 

Every year in May the local bandas clash in Condom, during these 3 days the fanfares play night and day.

 

 

 

 

The meeting with Yves and Louise is a pure pleasure too, an unforgettable memory, long moments of fun:

 

Then it's the big turn, I leave the Gers Ouest to go to Auch always in the same department but on an another way the GR 653,

the way Arles - Santiago, more desert, more beautiful also thanks to these woods and these green hills:

 

 

 

You must hold me before I fly away;)

 

 

 

To celebrate the arrival of the beautiful month of May some photos of the flora and fauna on my way:

And here I am in Marciac, the city of the eponymous Jazz Festival. Tomorrow I will be in the Hautes-Pyrénées, soon in Spain ...

 

Olé !!
