Another little post about Provence..Roussillon:)
I bought some ochres in Apt..but in Roussillon I bought a couple more..and 3 brushes..
to me ..bringing home small art supplies are so much part of my flutters.
Nothing extravagant..small tuckables..
Roussillon is magnificent..everything there is ochre color..hues..depths..
It is the setting for S Vreeland's book..Lisette's List..which I have Jeanie to thank for having told me about it..Jacques also read it.
It's a wonder of the world to me.
We went in 2009..and back again this time.The views are outstanding from these medieval towns.. perfect patchwork quilts of vegetation..nature..
It looks like someone must have designed these from above..because how else could such vistas be so ethereal.
We ate..in a resto..the one that states w/ panoramic views..and we were lucky enough to eat outdoors..Jacques had Aioli..look how Roussillon plates:)
Almost w/ ochres.
The views were super.
I must say though..that a group walked in and I have noticed this ..quite a few times..a young group..so pleasant..English speaking..etc..and another group..English speaking also..I gather 2 groups of friends..being tourists..2 different tables..strangers to each other.
I have found that how you treat your waiter/waitress is probably how you treat many people.
The younger 30'ish group..so pleasant..grateful..
the older group..my age..
I actually wanted to go and tell them to be more gracious.
But sometimes Jacques doesn't like when I do that;)
I am sure you can tell that if Provence is on your wish list..
