Coming out of a window

snakesThese little creatures come out of  a small window on Rue Chassaintes in Nîmes. Maybe they are snakes, maybe something else. If you look carefully, you will find them here and there in the nearby walls too.



Nîmes seen from the top of the amphitheatre

view from arenesHere’s another view of Nîmes, seen from the top of the amphitheatre. There, where you now see a giant wall painting of the Spanish torero José Tomàs, will a few years later stand the new museum of Romanity. The work has just begun. Otherwise the views are of the nearby suburbs of Nîmes, a mixture of old, fairly low buildings and new and modern apartment buildings.
