Oh, Toulouse!

This Week on Saturday, my family took me to visit Toulouse.

And what can I say, it is a beautiful city. We drove to the Metro Station, located on the far North-East corner of the city, and took it the rest of the way. First of all, we went to the City Plaza (which I took a lovely 360 Panorama of) and looked through all the stores around here.
