Greetings from Avignon

This is where I stayed when I was in Provence.  One of the first things I saw was the bridge, and immediately I started humming “Sur le Pont d’Avignon…” which I learned many years ago during French class in elementary school.  I wondered if there were other people nearby who knew the song so we could sing it in a round.

I also visited the Palais des Papes and learned about that aspect of the city’s history.  It was interesting to see all the different room displays and admire the impressive building.
