Deuxième excursion: les Baux and Pont du GardArles, Summer 2011
Our second excursion was to the Chateau des Baux (aka “les Baux de Provence”) and the famous Pont du Gard. It was a very fun day!! A bunch of the IES students got to help launch the replicas of the medieval catapults, including myself. After we explored the castle itself and surrounding medieval village, we had a picnic at the Pont du Gard and a free afternoon to go swimming in the Gard river, relax on the banks, go on a hike, take pictures, whatever we wanted. It was a very log day, but it was great to have time to relax with the other IES students and see some more of the major sites in Provence.
