The Paris of the South

Aix-en-Provence is one of my all-time most favorite places to be--sometimes I think I even love it more than Paris, if that's possible. I can't even count how many times I've been there by now, but however many times it is, it's not enough.

There's a really funny story behind this picture, which is that I was taking a shot of these flowers at a market and when I looked up, the guy who standing behind them was staring at me. I pointed to the flowers to indicate that I was taking a picture of the flowers, not him and we both cracked up.

    I love Aix, too, more than Paris. But after 2 years there I had to move on. I have been going to Paris for the past 4 years and still haven't run out of things to do and have made quite a few friends. But still my heart yearns for Aix.

    I like this city too... The Provence is somehow magic (not during long vacations...), and the deep blue sky is unique. I like your sensitivity about my home country, even if you are more persuasive than ... me :) Thks

    There's something so alluring about exquisitely bound books. For a good example of 'biblioporn' check out the binding of the book my home page:)
