Paint your palette blue and grey

In Aix-en-Provence we took the opportunity for a spot of culture; an exhibition showing the influence of Cezanne on Picasso was showing at the Musee Grandet. Knowing very little about either painter, we enjoyed some of the ideas in the exhibition and were interested to learn more about the life of both painters.
Aix is a lively and attractive place, even without its links to famous artists. We enjoyed window shopping around the narrow streets of the old town and being an audience for the chic weddings at the town hall and the Cathedral.
The camp site in Aix has a small cat population too, including the lovely moggy in the photograph who made herself at home in the van. She clearly has Siamese relatives and is the first cat we have met who is hungry enough to eat the vegan staple food, couscous and vegetables.
