Wrapping up our Buying Trip in France

We have finished our container!  We worked too hard and too fast to take photos of many of our finds, but we did take some pretty shots of the scenery around where we’ve been working.

The Arena in Nimes, a Roman amphitheater built 2000 years ago.

Roman ruins can be found throughout the city of Nimes.

The Maison Carrée or Square House in Nimes is one of the best preserved temples anywhere in the territory of the former Roman Empire

Southern France is full of olive trees and lavender...

...and fields of sunflowers.

The French are masters of Trompe l'Oeil, which literally means "tricks the eye," an art technique of painting on a flat surface such that the subject appear to be three dimensional.
We catch our flight back up to Paris today and then it’s back home for Renee and vacation in the Balkans for Alexander.  To celebrate our final shopping day, we spent the afternoon on a Mediterranean beach near Montpellier and had fruits de mer (fruits of the sea….or seafood platter) and rosé wine to celebrate! 

Prawns, oysters, mussels, sea snails, crab, and lobster...YUM!
