Arles, Aixe, and St. Remy

Today we had a typical French breakfast. It was delicious. We headed on the road to go to Arles. Today was market day. Our group had a fun time shopping. Instead the three of us chose to photograph the market. We also tried some fresh raspberries. We wandered around some alley ways and got some great photos of typical buildings in southern France. We then went to the Museum Granet. It was the perfect size. We went in and viewed some famous French artists that were influenced by Cezanne or influenced Cezanne. We grabbed a quite bite to eat and had a picnic in the square. Then we went to the bus and headed to Aixe. After about an hour drive, we went off the bus and toured the historic Roman town of Aixe. We toured around the whole town and saw the city with its many windows and shutters including the place Van Gogh loved to paint, our final stop in this town was a wonderful ice cream place that served ice cream that had honey and olive oil in it. From there we went to St. Remy, the town that Van Gogh's work was in. Unfortunately, the museum was under repair, so we only got to see replicas and a video, but we did get 2 books out of the deal. And because we were in St. Remy in the afternoon we got to listen to "Honky Tonk Woman" in a french accent.;
