Arles, France

Lots of tourist photos incoming.

Early Saturday morning, my aunt and I drove to Arles, France for a little weekend get-away. I was more than happy to return to French markets and restaurants. I also loved seeing another part of the country; it was very pretty in a different way than the northwest. Arles is in the southeast in the former province of Provence. Van Gogh painted over 300 paintings while living in Arles in 1888-89; there are also several Roman moments and structures. Unlike most people I encountered in Nantes and La Baule area, the majority of service industry workers spoke English, probably because the city is highly dependent on tourism.
