Perigord Noir, France

The British visit here. So do the Germans and, of course, the French (some from as far away as Paris!). With the charm of Sarlat, the magnificence of Domme, the grandeur of Castlenaud, the phenomenon of la Roque Gageac, the splendor of Beynac, the discoveries of Les Eysies, the 40,000-year history of the area, and a countryside that displays God's imagination at its best, so why do so few Americans know this section of the Dordogne?

I'm convinced that only decent Americans would follow through with a visit to this unique area of the world. (Sorry, but I've seen too many jerks abroad.) (And some might even learn that "Lasko" is spelled L-a-s-c-a-u-x.)
