Sorry I have been too tired to post anything. Here is a very brief summary and a few pics.

Le Puy to Figeac - 250 km approx - 14 days - average 17.8 km per day (top speed for me 😂)
Beautiful country. Excellent food - though sometimes a bit complex for my digestive system. Incredibly challenging terrain - for me - turned my ankle on day 3 (again). Adapting to French culture and language. Wanting to go home. Getting acclimatised. Settling in. Now more ready for the next two weeks.

What has the weather been like?
Rain, cold, hot, sunny. It's been all over the place. I am also currently on the route. One day it was like 5c with wind and cold. A few days later it was 30. But def rain has been a defining feature.
 
What has the weather been like?
Pretty good. Cool and a bit damp at the start. Some drizzly rain on a day or two but nothing major. Mainly sunny today in Figeac. BUT apparently this is unusual. Our host last night said that it can be really hot at this time if the year.
Edit. Just read @Mananath reply. A different experience from me

I think I am a few days ahead of you. Currently finishing up the Cele valley variant and heading to Cahors tomorrow.
