A Taste of Avignon from Gail Eichenthal
Gail is traveling through France with a KUSC tour group. Here she shares a few photos from their stop in Avignon.
This was only the appetizer of today' s wonderful lunch at the foot of Gordes, in the hills above Avignon. Smoked salmon cannelloni.
After lunch we visited this eerily well-preserved ancient village of Gordes, then Roussilon. Tonight, after a brief rest, we heard a fantastic string quartet play a private concert for participants of the KUSC tour. They are the Giraud String Quartet, made up of two sisters and their brothers, from an Avignon-born family of nine children!
Tomorrow...a tour of Avignon, and a serious lunch destination!
