Several local trips...
This week we stayed in a little more, mostly a combination of planning for the vernissage as well as just a little plain ol' end-of-quarter weariness (I should point out that by halfway through the quarter, we had already done nearly twice as much local travelling as most previous students have done all quarter.) The animation students went to Bonnieux one day, and the Treasures of Provence class stayed in Lacoste on Tuesday and went out on Thursday to the Fontaine de Vaucluse and L'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue. We were hoping, because it rained on Monday night, to see the source become a gushing torrent, but all the rain did was raise the water level a few feet and put a little more water into the river Sorgue. Enjoy some photos...
