As we suspected, we were not able to navigate on the Rhone the week we were in Valence, so after three days with our friends we took our car and drove to Provence where we visited the beautiful towns of Gordes, Lacoste, Roussillon and others. The weather has been glorious since we left Valence. On Easter Sunday we happened upon the Feria, which was taking place in the ARENES or Roman Colosseum. Although we had no tickets for it, we experienced it all by sitting outside the circus eating a great paella listening to the music and watching all the people enjoying themselves. We drove through the Pyrenees to Lerida through some breath-taking landscape. We are now in Madrid where we have been for three days seeing friends and the spring. Yesterday we went to an exhibit of Rembrand´s engravings at the National Library. It was an incredible show. Tomorrow we will leave Madrid for SanSebastian via Burgos.
