A Last Day in Aix

Just a quick update here from our last day in Aix.  After our trip to the vineyards the day before, we spent the day strolling around town.  Here are a few photos:

We came upon another flea market, which, like all the others, had some great old books.

Some books are better forgotten.

In a display of efficiency, Aix’s builders have taken advantage of every existing wall, and square foot of space. Houses and shops have been built in between the buttresses of the Madeleine church.

Our desert bounty of the day, some of the best of our whole trip. The praline and meringue treat in the top right corner of the box was our favorite, and reminded us of something that my mother occasionally makes. The chocolate treats weren’t too bad, either.
