when we arrived in france, we had taken the nighttrain from venice (meaning we didn't get much sleep). quite an adventure, though. having picked up the car at nîmes station and driven down to arles, we did some quick food shopping on the market and finally arrived at the mas, where we would be be spending a whole week. such a beautiful place. the building from the 16th century had been restored by our host and her partner, a stone mason. we loved the room, the summer kitchen, the pergola, the pool, the sound of the crickets. wish i could go back this minute!
p.s.: i've just been looking into photo courses, i'd love to take one this autumn and there are some interesting classes. exciting!
p.p.s.: thanks for all your kind comments. i'm sorry i sounded so sad in my last post. feeling much better now. had a wonderful sunday.
