Marseille to Aix
The size and relief of Marseille makes the journey to Aix pretty amazing. To someone used ot the Gironde or to Wales, Provence can look like the moon ! It's craggy, dry and weird. There are cacti ! Prickly pears ! People have gardens that are just bare soil. They try hard but it's so dry and dusty that nothing grows. Then in Marseille you spot the most improbably buildings where people live - just tiny little houses popped on top of shops or leaning against industrial looking buildings. Amazing.
