These are pictures from the Medieval Town, Peruges in France where we stopped on our way to Switzerland.

As you can see, nothing has been changed (except modern life) since the 11th Century!

So the next morning after we explored Odile Masquelier's garden together, we headed away from Lyon. About 20 miles out Behcet asked me if I would like to visit an ancient Medieval town. What a treat! We stopped in Peruges from the year 1050 and nothing had changed except for a couple of restaurants and little shops. We ate lunch in a very expensive restaurant which was very good, then went into a shop where I bought some batteries for my camera and some German Fairies. Then we drove the rest of the way, past Lake Geneva and on to Behcet's home which was near Aarau. The home was a labor of love designed by Behcet and his wife Reta who he had met through the internet. His wife Reta (Margareta) and I hit it off from the start as she is a Rosaholic like me and loves to be with her roses. Every inch of her yard was full of roses of all classes along with a variety of clematis (never to be found in Florida), Hostas and perennials known and unknown to me.
Behcet's record keeping is meticulous, an asset which comes in handy as one of the administrators at HelpMeFind.com.
