A Photographic Diary of My Trip: Antic Theater

Jury duty is sucking up all my time, but I still want to finish my photo diary of my trip so I'm going to do small spurts of photos from time to time.

After Nice, I took the train to Avignon and went on a day tour of the sights of Provence. Below are photos of the Antic theater in Orange, one of the best preserved amphitheaters in the world with a stage wall that still stands today.

There's a statue of the emperor in the wall, but a fun fact is that the head can be switched. ;o)

Lovely images! I adore Avignon. Though, when I was there, we stayed indoors for most of the time due to the "pluie" / crazy storm. It was so amazing to watch, though!

I would love to see some of these places in your pictures :)

The head can be switched?! Weird. Lovely photos, though! And sucks about jury duty. I've never been, but my coworker has and she said it was soooo long and boring!
