Sunday 01. 04. 12 It has been an interesting weekend. Alan and Lea finished their artist in residence in St Mathieu and are staying with me until Tuesday when they take the train to London before flying home to Canada. Last night we drove over to Pezenas after an early dinner and went to L’Homme Cirque a one-man history of the circus by David Dimitri, set in a tent in a parking lot! Dimitri did it all without saying a word – he jumped, he played the accordion and the trumpet, he even got fired from a cannon! The show culminated by him walking out into the night on a high wire above the parking lot. What a wonderful tour de force.
This morning we had a rendez-vous outside the mairie for a guided tour of the quartier where I live by the local residents association. A fascinating tour explaining the history of the neighbourhood complete with visits to old tanning factories, walking along the canal and of course it ended up with aperos and snacks at the end. I am definitely going to join the association!
