Wednesday is another sunny day and Allen is anxious to visit Roussillon a hill town that was featured in a book he read a long time ago called The Village in the Vaucluse. It is a true story written by a Haverford professor about his time living there in the 1950's. The town is known for the Luberon ochre hills.
