Bright start to the morning after a good night's sleep. A light breakfast and then off to explore Arles. It's a fairly large town. It has a Bull Ring, an Roman amphitheatre and it gave van Gogh a home to paint his Sunflowers. He shared his flat with his mate, Gaugin before they fell out and Goghy went short sighted! ( he cut his ear off and so his specs wouldn't stay on - boom boom) We didn't ...
... Sunday-afternoon-chill-after-the-Sunday -roast Movies, 'A Good Year' starring Russell Crowe. If you haven't seen it, get it. It's great. All set in the area we are staying in, its a perfect antidote to the modern busy lives we all lead (or led in my own case :-). A pic of me and Shep by the fountain in the movie is here.

Hope we do not miss any important instructions. "Errant animal ...
... back on. We had no time to spot any of the special jerseys, let alone get pictures of them. And just like that, it was over and all the spectators started dispersing. It was a bit anti-climactic because it had all happened so quickly but still quite exciting to see them zip by. We walked back to camp after that and caught the end of that day’s stage on the television in the common room. The riders were averaging about 45 km/hr that day so they must ...
