... was feeding the convicted criminals and prisoners of war to the beasts. Quite a barbaric form of entertainment and not one that was greatly appreciated amongst the spectators hence the reason for leaving the arena. After the lunch break it was time for the Gladiators to make an appearance, however it was not quite as gruesome as legend may have it. It was very rare that gladiators were actually killed in the arena and certainly not ...
What a glorious day to wake up to. The sun was shining, not a cloud in the sky and not a puff of wind, today is going to be awesome. We headed to Remoulins just north of Nimes to have a look at even grander Aqueduct than that at Castries and it didn't disappoint. Pont Du Gard. This piece of engineering is truly spectacular and to think that it was constructed in the years around 50AD is even more amazing and the fact that it is still standing is significant.

Visited the quaint yet very touristy town of Les Baux which is a old medieval town on top of the Alpilles Mountains. Its got great views over Provence however its a very poor cousin of Meteora. Also unlike Meteora which has kept its monasteries like they originally were and exudes a sense of calmness and peacefulness, the town of Les Baux is basically a shopping village and feels "cheap" in comparison. It was still nice to see but there is just no comparison.
