Our friends were living in Avignon for a year and had invited people to take advantage of their space. We decided to take them up on it, so i started reading the Avignon Quintet (mostly because i’m a fan of the Alexandria Quartet).
I only got as far as Monsieur (it’s the only one i brought, really). Durrell disappointed me a bit by straying so far from the walls, while we stayed within the walls, mostly, despite the tantalizing views. The most exciting bit was the anti-CPE march we joined. (This was back in March.) The photos are here
I think the best part was having friends who live there, and a home base that really was a home base. They could tell us what they liked and where to wander.
