Marseille by night

Thank your for your comments on the bag. It was a great pleasure to make it, and even more to see that you like it. Its recipient too liked it :-)
I've been busy last week, going out twice. Hence the lack of posts...

One of the night out was a bit amazing. We had the visit of one collegue, from far away. He wanted to see a bit of our country, but his timetable was such that we did not manage to reach Marseille before 9:00pm one evening. Of course, the evening started with dinner, so it was very late when we started our tour. Here are some pictures:
La Bonne Mère, the church that protects all the fishermen in Marseille, (and even all the non-fishermen);



A monument on the sea front, in honnor of all the soldiers from our colonies who died to protect France.The lights behind are those of the jail of Monte-Christo.
Across from the monument is the prettiest village of fishermen, right in the middle of the city, very amazing


Talking of far away, have a look at Amandine's blog, she's got nice photos, daylight photos...

What a fun tour even though it is night.

I think one should see scenery all sorts of ways...at night, in the rain, in the fog, with snow...familiar things can even look different. I like the night tour! Thanks

Marseilles! It's so nice to see it after reading all about it in the Count of Monte Cristo!

Since my uncle lives just outside Paris, I never see much but Paris when I visit him -- so it's lovely to see your images of Marseille. I can't quite tell how large that arch is in the second photo, but it looks big and beautiful.
