Holier Than Thou

I will be crossing this pedestrian bridge (Pont Valentre) when I hike out of Cahors tomorrow morning. I am always impressed that such impressive structures were constructed more than 800 years ago without modern machines. And are still standing!

I made it as far as the first tower today and was definitely nervous on these uneven stairs which had no hand rails. 

Even on my rest days I end up walking quite a few miles, and today was no exception. I love exploring these ancient towns and villages. I thought this old system to divert water for the town was pretty cool. 

I've seen several very impressive churches and cathedrals on this trip, and Saint Stevens was right up there. I didn't feel out of place being my usual "holier than thou" self in the cloisters there today.
