 Gordes, in the Provence: Christmas 2007

Tamiko and Peter spent Xmas 2007 / New Years 2008 in Nice, on the Côte d'Azur, France.
For Christmas we were in Provence, where we visited Gordes, one of the old hilltop towns.

This house has the most daring balcony I've ever seen.


In the summer you probably can't move in the small lanes due to all the tourists ...


... but on a chilly winter day it is fairly empty, except for.Peter, Kiko, and a matching fire hydrant.
