A Final Day in France, Sur le Pont d’Avignon…

We were due to fly out from Montpelier the next morning – Keith back to Ontario, and me back to the UK for a final few days in Windsor. Neither of us had been to Avignon but, like most kids around the world, we had grown up singing that song…  “Sur le pont d’Avignon, L’on y danse, l’on y danse…”

Sur le pont d’Avignon  <On the bridge of Avignon>
L’on y danse, l’on y danse  <We all dance there, we all dance there>

L’on y danse tous en rond  <We all dance there in a ring>

And then the Palais des Papes (The Palace of the Popes). Spectacular if you just wander around soaking up the architecture… a little unsettling when you take a detailed look at the history and what actually happened here.

Back to Montpelier and early departures…
