|Le Chateau de Ripaille, near Thonon-les-Bain|
Another highlight since I last blogged was my visit to Avignon with Valentine. She was busy at the Fine Arts school, so I had lots of time to wander around on my own. I spent much of my time revisiting the "Palais de Papes".
I have visited it once before, but as it covers about 2.5 acres, there was still stuff to see....
|Mostly built between 1334 to 1364, it still dominates the city.|
Fortunately, I pulled back from the brink of mortality and "The Long Winter" has been put back on the shelf, only three-quarters finished.
