Saturday 25 February 2012: Alaric porte son chapeau
That's what we say when la montagne d'Alaric is capped with cloud. Usually it means it's either going to rain, or it is raining. That's clearly not the case today -- the sky really was that colour, and I think Alaric must be wearing it to keep the sun off! Allegedly King Alaric of the Visigoths buried some treasure here and never came back to collect it, so it is still there to be discovered.
