Dreaming of France -- First Night in France

Please join this weekly meme. Grab a copy of the photo above and link back to An Accidental Blog. Share with the rest of us your passion for France. Did you read a good book set in France? See a movie? Take a photo in France? Have an adventure? Eat a fabulous meal or even just a pastry? Or if you're in France now, go ahead and lord it over the rest of us. We can take it.

What do you do first when you visit France?
For us, on our last trip, we hopped right on the train to Aix en Provence. Our friend Delana picked us up at the train station and dropped us at our hotel on Cours Mirabeau and we agreed to meet for a drink in a nearby plaza.
The theme that night must have been red, because here I am, drinking a kir royale which is a lovely scarlet color.

Maybe the color rubbed off on the other pictures because the other pictures from the square there look red as well.

For me, this was one of our easiest transitions, probably because we were entertained by Delana and her friend Patrick. We stayed awake and entertained until late in the evening as we moved to a Moroccan restaurant and enjoyed a fulfilling meal followed by mint tea, instead of our usual arrival in France which finds us dragging along counting the hours until we can fall in bed.

What a lovely start to a visit in France. I hope that it is always this delightful. 
Thanks for playing along with Dreaming of France. Please leave a comment and visit each other's blogs, too, so you can get your fix of France dreams

You give new meaning to the term 'red light district'! But seriously, how beautiful are those red-tinged shots?! Lovely, lovely pictures. It sounds like you always have a good time in France. Do you ever not?
