The Old and the new

 

Tuesday 30. 04. 19 I went into Montpellier today and visited L’Arbre Blanc, a modern apartment building, and the Cathedrale St Pierre, a 13th century cathedral. An interesting contrast in styles.

Les Baux

 

Tuesday 16. 04. 19 Patricia and I went to Les Baux today to see the new expo at the Carrières Luminaires, however we had forgotten that it was the Easter school holidays. When we arrived there was a long queue so we thought that we would have a walk around the old town and have a café and then come back later. On our return the queue was even longer so we cut our losses and drove to Aigues Mortes where we had lunch of fish and chips of all things in a Franco-Italian restaurant! Delicious! We then had a leisurely walk around town before driving home. We hope to get back to the expo in a few weeks time when there should be less crowds.
