Cours Mirabeau may be the most beautiful street in France. Lined with plane trees, rococo fountains, and 17th/18th century buildings you can see why Paul Cezanne painted here.
I ordered a Nutella waffle and hot chocolate...the hot chocolate was made by scooping chocolate gelato into a cup and melting it with milk. So good.
We were there on market day. It was fascinating.
So many kinds of olives.
I loved this little old lady and her shopping basket.
This hotdog shop made me laugh, but I didn't get a hot dog there.
Do you need a bag? You can buy one at the market.
And off the beaten path...
Aix was gorgeous, but my experience in France confirmed the stereotype of how rude the French are. I sat down in a cafe and when it became apparent that I don't speak French beyond, "good morning" the waiter asked me what I doing there if I didn't speak French. "Not eating at your restaurant," was my response as I walked out. Afterward I stopped at the tourist office and asked where I could find restrooms. The guy just waved at somewhere outside their building and walked away. So, clearly they are invested in promoting tourism at their tourist office.
