A nice relaxing day so i also able to catch up on some blogs (its so hard to find the time when your constantly doing and seeing new and exciting things!) and also had a wander through Perpignan city. There are about 112,000 (Perpignanais, Perpinyanés) in the city proper and a total of 300,000 in the metropolitan area.
Perpignan is a rugby stronghold: their rugby union side, USA Perpignan (Union Sportive des Arlequins Perpignanais ), is a regular competitor in the Heineken Cup and current champion of the Top 14,
while their rugby league side plays in the engage Super League under the name Catalans Dragons.
Perpignan is being filled with Irish doting funny red hats in anticipation of the big game between Munster (2008 Heineken cup champions) and the Perpignan team to be held here IM SO EXCITED!!!
