We left thrilled and impressed but thoroughly pooped from the stairs and the glorious sunny weather, and enjoyed the air-conditioned ride back to Arles past the sunflower fields and plane trees. Another early night for everyone as for some strange reason the main French TV channel didn't cover the Argentina vs Switzerland soccer game? I guess after France's win last night they needed a ...
