We made a quick trip to Ansouis which happens to have a little market on Sundays. Although we arrived a little after noon they were all packing up and leaving. Then we headed up into the village to buy a baguette and the boulangerie was closed. Apparantly once the bread is gone, they close. So, not to totally waste the trip, we sat down and had a glass of wine.
This is the only place in town for a quick drink or small bite to eat. There is also a nice restaurant. I sure wish we had something like this in our little village.
We sat down outside and I noticed a lot of people standing outside sort of blocking the door and I wondered what they were doing until it struck me that it was the smokers and they could no longer smoke inside. I can’t tell you how nice it is now to eat any place in France and not have to inhale smoke. I had sort of gotten used to it but am glad it isn’t an issue anymore. I’m not sure why this lady was holding a whole box of Gauloises, surely the strongest cigarette out there.
I took this photo because I really like the color of the door. I bet it will really look great when the rose bush starts blooming, which won’t be long now.
