Paris and Aix

June 16, 2010

Rainy day bus ride

I’m having trouble getting Aix in focus. It is plenty beautiful and the centuries old architecture is a joy to experience. The room I teach in is from the 1600s or something. Outside the front door of our building workers have the street dug up and 2 Roman caveways are exposed. They are putting pipes through them. It is a seriously old city.

More rainy day bus ride

People in Aix are not into being photographed. I got a lot of negative responses. At least the people on the bus were smiling and not yelling at me.

Aix-en-Provence

So I’m keeping my distance from people and trying to get a feel for the city. But, it’s not just buildings that make a city. It’s about the people too.

Below are a couple of pictures from Paris.

Croissants are a good reason to just sit back and enjoy France.

The coffee is good, too.

    Taking pictures in the Thursday (is it Thursday?) market can make people mad and then it gets really interesting!
