A Little French TripTuesday, 2 August 2016
◄ Yes we’re in wine country
▲ … but also the fascinating Carrières de Lumières, in a towering cave-like quarry projections appear on walls, roof and floor, alternating between a Chagall story and Alice in Wonderland – with ‘the Crazy Hatter’ in the not-very-good French translation. It looks terrific, like some ‘60s psychedelic light show.
▲Finally our French travels conclude at the annual arts festival in Aix-en-Provence. While we’re there France beats Germany in the Eurocup semi-final and the town’s central fountain is full of happy French footy enthusiasts waving their tricolours. Sadly this was exactly one week before the crazy truck-propelled attack on the Bastille Day crowds in nearby Nice.
