Montpellier

Sunday 04. 10. 18 Met Claire for lunch in Montpellier yesterday. We had an excellent Couscous outside on the esplanade in the sunshine and then afterwards went to a photo expo at the Pavillon Populaire. An interesting show on the American Civil Rights Movement in the 60s by mainly local journalists. And it was free!!
