Avignon

This am we toured the14th century Palais des Papes. Avignon is a walled city. Limestone facades and narrow streets. Seems very clean. Stores are closed on Monday mostly. I guess when you hit the top tax rate (52%) at just 65K euro per year, your incentives change. The bus ride to the ship was in minimal traffic as trucks are not allowed on the roads on the weekends without a special permit. Socialism at its finest!
