My favorites - though in general I'm captivated by the building colors and architectural styles.

In that part of France 'boule' ("boccia") is the ' jeu provençal', «jo de boulo».

You can watch people playing it everywhere - like here in Antibes, the next place I went to.

All the time I've been around there, I couldn't visit four churches I really wanted to see due to a mass or service.

Here, it was a funeral

Thanks for taking me to the French Riveria. The baroque style interior of the church was gorgeous.
