06/06 - 06/08 - Summer School in Avignon

Avignon, the city in the south of France where the Pope lived for a few years back in medieval times (1309 - 1423).

For me it was the place where a training in ultrasound and microwave took place, the Summer School in Avignon. Back to school for 3 days... I don't wanna bore you with the stuff I heard all day long (it's very interesting for me) but show you some pix that I made when walkin around in this historic city after school was over...

My hotel's directly located at the Palais des Papes, the residence I mentioned above. An impressing building... as all buildings the Catholic Church ever built.

Another attraction is the famous bridge of Avignon, the Pont St. Bénézet... it's just half way over the Rhône, the rest has been damaged by wars and floods.

I found a good place to have dinner in the evening... easy thing cuz there a dozen of restaurants and the stuff I saw there looked really good...

On the last evening of the session we'd a nice dinner on a boat which was drivin on the Rhône, another experience that you've not every day...
