Travel: Arles and Avignon

Arles is a city in the south of France. It is around 30 min train ride from Avignon. After spending two days in Marseille, I was so looking forward to seeing Arles. There is always so much more to expect from a small city than a big one. And I do like Arles a lot more than I like Marseille.

I actually haven’t done any research before I headed to Southern France like always. Thanks my clients, who I photo shot in London passed all their information to me, so that I had a list of good restaurants to go to. Thanks Clare and Kin! arles-avignon-1

I still remember the day I left Arles, while I was passing through a parking lot and walking to the train station, a French guy came out of his car and talked to me. When I told him I couldn’t speak French, he waved me goodbye. When I finally got out of the parking lot, he came up to me out of nowhere and said to me, “hey, I want you! I like you! You are pretty! I want to have fun with you!” All I could manage to say was, “no thank you!”and I RAN all the way to the station. This is the thing that I hate to encounter the most.
