Â So far Aix is my favorite city in Provence, despite getting my wallet stolen there. Many of the buildings have been built with golden stone, the streets are cobbled and there are always interesting doors, windows and courtyards to see.
Â These windows are above a shop called the Dreaming Cat. Why there is a goat in the window, I have no idea. Once they had a giraffe up there too.
Â A lock on a door leading to the country of Alice in Wonderland, I’m guessing. Bet the key is heavy.
A fascinating door on the beautiful Cours Mirabeau whichÂ is lined with plane treesÂ with the balcony being held up by two suffering men.
Â They always look like they have a headache to me.
Â Many corners of building have statues of saints or Mary high up overhead giving you a feeling of being looked after.
Â Another fountain that I like-Aix is full of them-but I have trouble getting a good photo as there is renovation going on all around it.
