The Holiness of yore.

So, yes, I think I was bragging enough for all of you to know we're in France again. And this time we can put the "blame" and ever so lovely Andre dede13  and Olivier, so we get to be totally spoiled in their home in Ensues - La Redonne (have I got it right this time, DD; without the accents, of course...). That's what I call vacation, people. La vie français at its best, I tell you. I will surely keep you posted how it goes. And today it was a tourist day. Andre unfortunately had to work, so Olivier took us too Avignon, city really known for... well, Google it, okay? It's past 1am and even on vacation I need to get some sleep. So I will just post a few more pictures today. Not usual tourist guide pictures, but objects are really world class; The Pope's Palace and Avignon bridge. Be my guests! :)



Avignon bridge as birdies see it. :)





 







Olivier and Iggy almost lost in a gigantic chapel...

You are a lucky man! Enjoying the pictures. Just googled the town (displays as Ensuès-la-Redonne on my computer) so I can live vicariously.

I certainly hope you did a little dance while you were sur le pont d'Avignon.

And then did it again.

Avignon...
I'm precisely now studying a painting by Picasso called "Les demoiselles d'Avignon". However, the painting is not about "misses" nor from "Avignon, France", but prostitutes at Carrer Avinyó of Barcelona
Giggle!

But it's a beautiful place!!!!!!!!! Thanks for the pics

It's quite a coincidence. :)

Thanks, Xavi. These places are wonderful.

Avignon is swell. Aix-en-Provence isn't so bad, either. have fun- you'll certainly eat well.

Avignon is amazing. Aix left me rather cold three years ago. We discovered some other treasures today. Will post some evidence tomorrow. :)

Food is... divine.
