Rosetta Stone

Today our journey was a short one of 12 km to the town of Figeac. We will take a rest day here and visit the town of Rocamsdour (more to come tomorrow on this). 

The day was misty and rainy so I gave my camera a day off!  The walk was pretty pedantic through country roads and paths.  Here is a quick glimpse of today. 


Jean-François Champollion, born in Figeac, cracked the code of the Egyptians hieroglyphics of the Rosetta Stone. 


The original Rosetta Stone resides in London, but a copy is maintained here at a museum in his honor.
