Requins dans les rues et les sourires sur un joli visage
Avignon was truly a city of wonderful surprises for me and obviously such a beautiful environment in which to live.
The whole of the town was pristine and shiny, clean and polished and friendly and vibrant.
The pride of the town was evident with every footstep and the shops, restaurants and cafes were welcoming and friendly.
A tremendously good-natured atmosphere abounded everywhere.
Nathalie and her gorgeous smile had met us at the Kyriad and that's when the surprises started.
We were invited out, with the sun fading into a crimson sky and the lights of the church spires silhouetting themselves happily behind anything that had been there for so many hundreds of years.
As we walked along the perfect, narrow Rue du Vieux Sextier with its lovely shops and colourful and pristine paving, we were at once confronted with a menacing shark which Nathalie had previously mentioned, some time ago on her blog.
But no matter how menacing she was, she could not scare it away !
Who could ever be scared away from such a delightful place as this?
'Here endeth the requin' !
