The Château de Puilaurens is one of the Cathar Castles in what is now the South of France. The castle here had belonged to the Abbey of Saint-Michel de Cuxa before it was acquired by the King of Aragon in 1162.  As Aragonese property it was outside the territory ravaged by the Crusaders during the Cathar wars.  Like Queribus it therefore provided a refuge for those fleeing from the invading forces.  Those who took refuge there included both Cathars and faidits, that is to say those who had forfeited their property because of their opposition to the invaders.  These faidits included high nobles, such as Guillaume de Peyrepertuse.

I put more then 12 hours work in a presentation about baptisteries in france.. only to find out: it won’t be enough for the seminar on friday..

so I’ll have to look up another church in france (decided to go with saint-michel-de-cuxa) but I don’t have much time tomorrow because I’m giving two tours…

and I’m tired and I don’t know why on earth I believed I could be a teacher I’m so unorganized that it hurts…

and yes that is the reason why I just posted lots and lots of racoons.

i wanna be a racoon.

people would feed me and would have to do nothing and I had fluffy fur and people would believe me to be cute because I’m fat.

that would be great.
