Joining Selina again to share some lovely French stuff. A bit of a problem coming up with different posts when we travelled together but... c'est la vie!
One of my favourite places we visited was Arles, the place our cruise started from. I knew there was a Roman arena there but not much else about the place. Not having studied art I wasn't aware of its connection with Vincent van Gogh, but our guide told us lots about his stay there and pointed out places associated with his paintings.
This picture is of the garden at the hospice where he stayed and it is kept looking very much the same as it looked in his painting.
We also went to the cafe which features in his painting 'Cafe by night' but somehow I neglected to take a picture. Quel dommage! (what a pity)
