public merry go rounds are common

  It turns out that the ambulance service was on strike and they were slowly going down the main street with sirens blaring and the grievances trying to be explained above the noise.

  My God, young kids were running to the park gate to see what it was all about. Then an old lady got up from her bench to watch and then return to give her report to the 4 other retired people she was talking to.

  After waking around the pedestrian part of the old city we ran into the main shopping street where you can find cafés, bars, restaurants, a Monoprix, an FNAC and boutiques like Hermes and Bally.

  We finally found a public park and sat down in the shade to do some people watching when a real raucous noise started coming down the street.

  After enough tourists, traffic and tacky gifts, we left for the next village just across the river, Villeneuve-les-Avignon. >>
