Off to France

First stop Alba ,Piemonte in wine growing country.

We went on to Annecy with its crystal clear lake.

Near Annecy I went to a gorge where one goes through the gorge on a cantilevered walkway.

We returned to Avignon to see some things mainly out of the city.

Pont du Gard aqueduct. The Romans managed to build it with a gradient of 300mm every 1000m

At St Roman south of Avignon I visited a Monastery carved out of a rocky hilltop. 


Out of the way Avignon, in Rue Teinturiers

Other odd angles of Avignon
