A Day In Avignon

Set off early in the morning to visit a cherry plantation as well as the sample the fresh cherries right off the tree. Our host Eric, where we stay, happens to also be the owner of the cherry plantation. He has about 80 pickers, mainly from Spain. The reason is that the spanish pickers have no job in the summer since their olives only harvest in the winter time. So during the slack summer time, they would travel up to Malaucene for jobs.





Thereafter, we headed to Palais des Papes (Palace of the Popes) where the Popes from the Vatican used to come here for their summer during the old days.

Howdy,
Ah...so tis is how cherries look like from the tree:P Lovely. Reminds me of the crystal cherries brooch tat was given to me last Xmas. Cool. I always wear tat when I wear full black. Cos they all so bad, say I look like firece discipline mistress (I always carry a wobbly plastic rule and red marker) with I wear all dark. So must use the cherries to lighten up:P Awww...

Anna: So is the show any good? I am afraid it'll be another case of film doing the book grave injustice.

Akk: Pick cherries? Let's just say that I've picked hundreds of them. Hahahaha...

KoreanHouseWife: Yeah, my initial impression was like it resembled that of a coffee plantation.
