Just Another Summer Tuesday Night in Uzes

The Barefoot Blogger is getting a bit blasé, I’m afraid, about all the activity below my apartment windows on Tuesday nights.

I mean, there are only market vendors with jewelry, food and all sorts of handiwork. There’s a bit of music and, of course, tango dancing at the Mairie (town hall). Sounds boring, right?

NOT!!!

Tango dancing at the Mairie on Tuesdays brings together dance lovers and tango club members from near and far.

 

 

 

Dancers swirl to their favorite tango music in this beautiful setting in the center of Uzes.

Wandering around the plaza gave me a chance to stop by for a short visit with one of my favorite artists. (More about Marie and her work coming soon!)

 

 

 

 

There’s always something new to try from the weekly vendors. l’Aligot de l’Aubrac is a mixture of cheese, heavy cream and potato stirred up in a huge pot. It’s served here with grilled sausage and onions.Yum!

 

 

 

 

Not bad for a summer Tuesday night in the neighborhood….
