We will close the Avignon portion of our blog with a variety of images. First -- yes we did eat! This is an open-faced "tartine" from Le Cid in Avignon.
The view down this Avignon side-street showed the tension between a modern city and its trees, in this case the famous plane trees of Provence.
Last, but not least, the Christmas Market FINALLY opened in the main square after our having lived with the preparations for 3 days!
When we asked at the end of the trip which place had they enjoyed the most [other than Paris, of course ;)], almost everyone answered "AVIGNON!"
