“Oddly, as we were on the road, we saw the parallels between our choices and E & M’s! The countryside was beautiful. We found a B&B, Mi Casa, with the wonders of WiFi and Mac! A charming street and room!
“We have one day in Arles (also like E & M) so we decided to walk along the Quai Marx Dornoy next to Le Rhone, and head to the Roman Amphitheatre. Touristas!”
9pm From my journal: “We ducked into the Vincent Van Gogh Museum — disappointing — not much of his work on display. I did find one captivating, Shed With Sunflowers, sweet and colorful. [Postcard on its way!]”
“We walked by Le Cafe and made reservation . . . then on to a surprising find, a huge Roman amphitheatre in the center of town. The history is interesting — which is good because these structures bore me. After the fall of the Roman Empire Romans moved into the structure and turned it into a fortress, building over 200 houses [in the center.] I’m sorry to say they removed the historic town and now hold cruel bull fights. I root for the bull.”
“Tonight I added color memories of the day, because I didn’t take my watercolors along. I kind of like doing it this way. Another experiment!”
