Avignon, France 2008

In October 2008, we went to Avignon in Provence.  There was a smaller group this time, 24, but no less enjoyable.  We stayed at Hotel Bristol which was very convenient for the town, the bus station and the railway stations.  We sang at a mass in Saint Agricole church and in the Grande_Chapelle in the Palais des Papes, and also in various ad hoc places including on the Pont d'Avignon, in les Alyscamps in Arles and in Nimes_Cathedral.
