This week in Vauvenargues/Aix zoomed by quicker than a frequent rider of Provence’s public bus system could warble out a “merci, au revoir”, whilst flinging themselves off the bus and out onto the street.

The first day we arrived, we were driving up this beautiful hill and when we saw an apricot colored house at the end of the road. Dave did not hesitate to play a joke on us and say that the house belonged to two grumpy old people that we should be careful not to anger.
