We picked up our rental car in Nice, brand new Fiat 500 or as we liked to call her, Fifi (feefee). After seeing how people drive in Italy I spent the past month very nervous about this day. Arriving in Nice gave me a lot of relief as the roads were a bit wider and driving was a lot more calm looking. Our goal for this day was to see as much as the Gorge Du Verdon.

Perhaps they were celebrating our departure rather than wishing us Bon Voyage? To those who had waited for an hour and a half we send our apologies. It never occurred to either of ...
Today I suggested we go to see a medieval town, Les Baux de Provence. An almost perfectly preserved castle and village. It's absolutely beautiful, you can easily envision what it would be like sharing the streets with the original residents. We're given audio tour devices which explain several dozen sites around the castle. At 1:30 we catch a demonstration of the ancient catapults they have on display. They ...
