I loved this town of Foix. It’s a government town, like a state capital I think, with a very well preserved medieval center and plenty of good jobs.
You swing through a place for a night because it’s convenient, not expecting much and then bam, a highlight. Maybe it’s as simple as that of the 20 people I had dealings with, every single one of them was pleasant. I also think it is possible that a place itself can have good vibes and that makes the people pleasant. Or maybe I was feeling pleasant.
For whatever reason, Foix is a pleasant place to visit and a great kickoff point for Cave Man Country (Tarascon sur Ariege).
