Monday Moods: I feel... ruined.

This morning has been full of exploring
the ancient Roman ruins in Arles.

We have climbed the steps of the ampi-theatre
that used to host gladiators & wild beasts
and today is the meeting place of bulls & matadors....

We have sang on the stage
that once welcomed ancient performers
and today hosts famous celebrities....

And now?

I'm taking another cue from the Romans
and am headed into to take a hot bath.

If you are visiting Arles,
you can visit both the ampi-theatre & theatre for €5...
plus, you are surrounded by French restaurants.

Nothing about that combination can ruin your day!

*If you visit during the warmer months, 
you'll have a good chance of seeing a bull-fighting event in the stadium
(a favorite sport of Arlesiennes)
or catch a performance or classic movie in the theatre.
