Time in Avignon was short.  We toured the Pope's Palace and then walked through town to a cafe for a typical lunch in Provence.  As the French say C'etait tres bon.  It was very good.  After lunch we had about an hour of free time.  I walked through town, did a little shopping and visited the Pope's garden behind the palace.

These gentlemen are on either side of the door to the theater.  They weren't identified by name.

Interesting building
