aix-en-provence, france

Aix-en-Provence...town of a thousand fountains, which sit in pretty squares, are tucked in lush gardens, make up traffic roundabouts, and along pedestrianized streets...this is truly France at its finest.  Shady streets, an unusual green and gold organ in the town's cathedral, hip restaurants and shops making their home in the first floor of ancient, tall, shuttered buildings (shuttered, as in, having shutters, not being shut down) all combine to make up a town that's good for walking and just enjoying.
