... 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'm not one to complain so I ate it and jolly good it was too. It is 31C. Back ...

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.

The upper town is medieval but we decide the outer walls are probably the best views. Besides most of the shops etc. have already closed. Time to go home.

Cafes on the square are very touristy and overpriced by many accounts which I read on beforehand; therefore I just had my own picnic of cheese sandwich before going to the Palais des Papes. I saw some crowds going to the Palace, and so I decided to see ...
