Postcard from la Provence, l'Isle-sur-la-Sorgue

This is the town we live in for two weeks each year.
We have rented the same house in this town
for a couple of years now
and it has become our second home town.
I know (some of ) the shops, and the people who keep them,
I go to the butcher and to the baker's here,
visit the weekly markets on Sundays and on Thursdays,
just like everybody else who resides there.
Each year, it feels like coming home.

The flower shop, the Jazz café ...

The antiques market on Sundays ...

One of the shopping streets ...

And grab a pastis in the shade at L'Arquet, our favourite bar,
when the shopping is done ...

I love it here ...
