break in the region of the Lot

Robert is our neighbour and safeguarder of the village's knowledge system. He's a favourite - has a warm, giant wide heart + he can fix anything.

Everyone who comes to the village, always drop by to see Robert and give him news: the world comes to him. He never got a driver's licence, so travels around on his tractor or mobilette. He's made himself the living soul of the place, with a load of local knowledge.

The first time he invited me for breakfast after we had taken out his animals, he offered me wine, bread and cheese. I had never had wine on an empty stomach... I felt sick all day.

Morning walk.

The best tree to lie beside while watching out for shooting stars.
