Montpellier in the gloom

In spring, it’s possible to see the

wonderful shapes of the plane trees along the avenues and in the squares

A most French sight – people lining up at 6 for their baguettes, on the way home from work
Place de la Comedie – one of the best public spaces anywhere
Le marché ce matin in
a tiny moment of sun –
more plane trees
