France Vacation, August 2002

Mum and I spent five days in Paris, then picked up rental car and headed south.
We visited many prehistoric cave art sites in the south of France (the main focus
of our trip) such as Lascaux II (most famous but can only view an artificial copy,
not the original), Abri du Cap Blanc, Grotte du Pech-Merle and Grotte du Niaux among others.
