aix en provenceI wasa little bit disappointed with Aix en Provence. Maybe it was just that the weather had gone a little dull. The Cezanne museum was closed too, which didn't help. We got some views of  mont sainte victoire coming in on the train from Marseilles which was intereting. I did thisi small pastel from the dining table of a small cafe on the edge of one of the squares where the morning market was just clearing away. A Council worker was very enthusiastically spraying water everywher with a hose which caused a bit of excitement as the river it caused ran under the cafe tables. Definitely feet up!
