On Sunday afternoon our walk through the quiet Avignon streets took us

We wandered for a couple of hours, eventually ending up back in the main tourist street which we have already come to know pretty well. We did stop in a tiny Cote d'Ivoire grocery for coconut cream and lychee juice, and at a bakery for a couple of pastries (Dave) and a lemon and poppy seed cake slice (me) to go with tea. I have now worked out how to make a delicious Chai Latte with my Twinings Chai tea bags - just use hot milk in lieu of boiling water and leave the bag to steep a couple of minutes longer.
Having previously been told elsewhere that there were seven Avignon Popes in the 1300s, on Sunday we saw this large mural depicting nine! I think the last two were later, but I am having trouble deciphering the dates from the photo now. It's a shame that part is obscured by the surrounding railings.
