|Van Gogh painting|
|The bridge today|
Later in the day we walked a route through the city to see The Yellow House, The Shop and the famous The Starry Night looking out over the Rhone. Again the sites have changed over time but with a copy of the painting in your hand you can be transported back to the 1880s. The yellow house was destroyed in 1944 but the building along side and the train bridge down the road is still there. The Bedroom at Arles has gone but we have seen the original painting in Amsterdam.
We returned to Malua and had the obligatory meal in the floating Restaurant/dock we were attached to. Not that we minded it was one of the best meals we have had. Local produce cooked in the galley and presented simply and elegantly while Malua was secure along side and we watched the Rhone flow by under a starry night – what bliss.
