Limoges, France - June 1, 2008

Limoges has a population of about 135,000 and is in the Haute-Vienne department of the Limousin region, of which it is the administrative capital. It is known for medieval enamels on copper, 19th century porcelain and oak barrels used in Cognac production. Not too much to write home about.
Overall, Limoges exuded a somewhat grim ambiance and, although some restorative work had been completed and more was underway, there were no indications that it would ever become a pleasing tourist experience. Click here for a tour.
