Gladiator Redux

 Today was market day in Uzes so I took a bus to this up-and-coming trendy town. I bought tasty dried apples and some really smelly (my criterium for good) cheese.

Then as a favor to Doug I took another bus, this time to Nimes to visit the best preserved Roman Arena in the world. This is where they filmed "Gladiator" with Russel Crowe.

Oh, and I stopped and toured a couple of castle/fortresses along the way, of course.

A train ride home upped my luxury quotient, but I am now being bombarded by non-stop very loud reggae music from the convent below. I have to get out and away. NOW!
