more of Provence, Camargue, Languedoc Rossilion regions









after almost a week of stomach virus and a cold ... with terrible weather outside I finally recoverd and planed a new trip....




















Arles! Where our dear Vincent van Gogh lost his mind in the Mistral wind and the summer heat ;). This was the arena.






















IT was SO windy.... hi .. my name is hairy. ;)

That is the Mistral wind coming down the Rhone river. It supposedly makes people crazy.. and no kidding i saw 6 signs for psychologists and psychiatrists while walking through the oldest part of the city.











This .... is for fiona.. found it on a wall in Arles.. sorry forgot to turn the image sideways.







This is the beautiful flatness of Carmague... you can look on forever.. in this case though i snuck into someone's wine field.. lol















Beautiful grapes turn into beautiful wine.. is what i decided.. lol












This is the view I have when I drive the 10 km from Fressac where I am staying to St. Hippolyte du fort.








Sunflowers...


















and more sunflowers...
