    Hotel du Musee, Arles

    September 29, 2019 in France ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    First day in Arles and things are looking good. We may be back in a hotel room, but it is a very nice one in a very promising hotel. The building is old but they have done an excellent job of creating spacious, airy rooms in it without destroying its character. And what bliss, a shower with enough space that I can wash below my knees! We checked in and had a little ramble around town and a quick stop at the information centre.
    Many of the restaurants were closed on Sunday so we just set off to see what we could find and ended up stopping at a place with an actual live piano player. Now truth be told my meal wasn't that good, but the music was. The pianist was pretty good and he could sing - kind of a Tom Waits/Nick Cave growl style that I liked. And to top it off some a very passable jazz songstress happened to be passing by and joined in for some old standards. A table outside in a courtyard - I was in heaven.
