Spending a lot of time just wandering around Aix this week. Learning our way through the maze of tiny streets...here is a typical Aixois street near the art school.
Today is another market Saturday....nearly everyday is a market day in Aix! We discovered another market today that also has seafood, and we found the flower market as well. And, today we also adventured beyond just purchasing produce and bought fresh pasta, cheese and chocolate...and paid dearly for it! All delicious and all very expensive! Pointing, nodding, smiling and tasting was great fun, and my french is still pretty terrible and the result was paying about 10 euros for the cheese, 9 for the pasta and 5 for the chocolate! wow! As my french improves, so will my shopping!
Heading back into our apartment we are greeted by this spectacular marble ball at the bottom of the main staircase. It's a bit out of place, but makes us both smile...
rue Marius Reinaud...our street. Our apartment entrance is just before the green awning on the left. I can't afford to buy a single sock on sale at the store with the green awning!
