... As usual we had a 20 minute tour of the commercial sector before we turned round and came across a nice place overlooking the water. Sue had gambas while I ordered a bien cuit burger, imagining that it would arrive a little pink in the centre. On arrival it was obvious that the chef had just waved it at the flames.

I will now try to add some photos. Watch this ...
... who passed through (Van Gogh who spent time here after he cut off a portion of his ear and Picasso due to his love of bull fights that took place at the Amphitheatre).
As much as it was fun wandering around the town of Arles and participating in the events that were happening in the town, we had to leave as we had a long drive to meet up with our friends Karin and Gouri. Being the month of July, this is the time ...
