Provence

We are staying in Aix-en-Provence. In Aix-en-Provence there is nothing to do but sit in cafes watching people walk by. Presumably they are making their way from one cafe to another. In one cafe we sat next to a man with 'my life is krazy' tattooed on his arm. My initial thought was if you have to have a tattoo telling people your life is crazy, it's probably not that crazy, but then I noticed he had spelt crazy with a K. Touché, cafe man.

Many of the towns in Provence have had a defining influence on the modern world. The town of Orange is where the Orange fruit was invented. The town of Gap was of course the birthplace of the gap and the town of Apt was where the concept of aptness was realised, which is apt because it is called Apt.
