A recent visit to Carrières de Lumières was my third experience with the digital, immersive events staged in a former bauxite mine outside the village Les Baux de Provence. This year’s exhibition is “Picasso and the Spanish Masters.” Believe me, the photos don’t do justice to the real event.
Nothing compares with the Saturday or Wednesday markets in Uzes. Yet these Tuesday events, clearly for tourists, have the added attraction of a nighttime ambiance in the Place des Duche.
There’s not much that I love more than hobnobbing with royalty. Even if it’s from a distance. Each year Uzes hosts a musical event during the summer that brings in famed artists from around the world. This year, the festival brought in French royalty — Prince Albert of […]
What’s happening in Uzes, France on July 14th? I set out with my camera to see how the French celebrate in this small town. It’s all about family, food, dancing and fireworks. This year, it was also about brocante. A hundred or more brocante dealers showed off their best […]
Days filled with things I love
Sete is food, history and fun!
Thanksgiving with friends in France is getting to be a ritual now
spend a weekend around Uzes
Fete Votive Uzes 2015 was spectacular. How will this year’s event compare? By far, one of the most exciting events of the year in Uzes, in my opinion, is Fete Votive. Next week it’s live along the main street in Uzes with lights, action and extraordinary booming sounds. […]
Enough reminiscing. Fast forward to this weekend in Nimes. The ancient Roman city in the south of France is going to party like it’s 2016! One of the most exciting events in the Languedoc region of France is coming up Pentecost weekend (May 12-16) in Nimes. The Pentecost […]
Autumn is my favorite time of year in Uzes
It’s more than a dream come true. It’s pure heaven.
A road trip from Uzes to Provence
It’s been my suppressed desire to sing with a rock band
There’s a bit of music and, of course, tango dancing at the Mairie (town hall)
There are few words better than “explosive” to describe the late night parade in Uzes that accompanied Fete Votive 2015.
Fête de la musique à Uzès
The French love bandes dessinées — drawn cartoons. We may call them “funnies” in the States but here they take the art form quite seriously.
There are a few musical events in my life that I will always remember. The concert with Stacey Kent in the Cour du Duche last night is high on the list.
