Visiting Arles Leave a reply Here are a few sketches from a trip to the south of France last October. This was a one day excursion to Arles, where we were lucky to enjoy decent fall weather! Les Portes de la Cavalerie (Cavalry gates) Roman amphitheater from first century, had room for 26,000 spectators! Lady in the window – near Café Van Gogh, I was snapping away, and didn’t notice this lady until later, looking at my photos! At Jardin d’Eté, here is a statue of Niobe, from Greek mythology, she is weeping for her children.
