a cleaner city in aix

Mr. T got sick again. Boo!!!! We had a doctor’s appointment already scheduled for this past Friday though, so it worked out pretty well. The good news is that he’s getting better and he hasn’t had a fever since Friday morning. The bad news is that he’s behind on his vaccination shots because the French give more shots than the Swedes do.
We went back to Aix-en-Provence yesterday, but this time we actually went to the city. The day was cloudy but the city was still beautiful. Yet there was something about the vibe that I didn’t quite like. Even Pierre noticed how the people there look you up and down, scrutinizing every bit of your attire, I don’t like that. I must say, however, that I understand why people say that Marseille is so unlike an average French city – the clean streets, the bigger sidewalks, the clean buildings…you won’t find too much of that in Marseille. But you will find beautiful beaches, gorgeous calanques and a wonderful mountain backdrop to feast your eyes on. Seriously, I am really into this city. For all its dirtiness, it’s just gorgeous.
So the trophy for natural physical beauty goes to Marseille and the one for great shopping and a gorgeous all-around city goes to Aix.
One more thing, Mr.T went to his first soccer game today with his papa! He actually went out with Pierre two times today (trust me, I needed the break), once to the park and then again in the afternoon to the game. You should have seen how proud he was saying goodbye to me. When I asked him to give me a goodbye kiss he did and then he pointed to Pierre (like it was his turn!). So sweet.
remember, it was cloudy so I took very few pictures…
