Aloha to the old town - 40 Rue Poilu, in the heart of this historic city. I've been here for two weeks, walking its winding streets with stairs and archways (and an occasional fountain), going to the boucherie, frommagerie, boulangerie, patisserie, cafés...or to the train, the beach, the Saturday Market.
Adieu to new friends, Pierre, Bert, Donna, Jean-Charles, Pierre B, Brigitte, Donna, Marie, Thierry, Luca & Federica, Odele, Angela, to my helper at la Poste, my new friend at le petit Casino market.
Adieu to La Grignotiere, Le Mekong, Les Garcons, La Trinquette, Cosmos - duck breast in figs, salmon grilléé, tarte tatin, poulét curry, flan de les legumes, panna cotta, vins rosé et rouge.
Adieu to St. Michel, St. Pierre - homage to gypsies of Saintes Marie's de la Mer by Jean Cocteau, who entreats: "Come yourselves into the structure of the building as living stones."
It's been my joy to be 'home' in the Vielle Ville,
here in the heart of beautiful Villefranche Sur Mer.
