A Day in Marseille

A quick trip to the Musee des Civilisations de l'Europe et la Mediterranee in Marseille and some of the surrounding sights.  The weather was bright, sunny with a light breeze.  The museum and the surroundings were quite captivating and lunch after was wonderful, but then that is another story for another day.

I really like this "old entrance" picture. Seems you have a pleasant time there at our old neighbours.
