I traveled on a train for a few hours to get to the region of Provence in France. Provence is known for providing around 80% of France's fruits and vegetables.  The area is a lot like Louisiana because of the weather.  I toured the city of Avignon with a tour guide.  Guess what joke she told me?  Why do the French eat snails?  I knew the answer because you all taught me that joke!  She was so impressed!  I saw the Palais de Papes which is the Palace of the Popes.  The whole city of Avignon is surrounded by a stone wall made hundreds of years ago.  They also have stone ruins that have been around since before Jesus!  Isn't that crazy!?  I visited some little villages and then headed to see some of the life of Vincent Van Gough. As you can see in the pictures he enjoyed gardens like Monet did.  It was very cool to see what he was looking at when he painted all of his famous paintings.
