An Afternoon in Uzs
April 2007

April 29, 2007 --  What a joy to be back in Uzs! The town seems to have changed very little. Oh, there are new shops, some of the restaurants have changed, but the overall feeling is the same. We are still knocked back by the beauty and serenity of the restored medieval buildings that contrasts so strongly with the liveliness of the Saturday market.
     Meeting up with Cheri and Jim Adams on Saturday morning wasn't hard...we rendez-vous-ed at the Cafe de l'Esplanade where everyone seems to stop for a quick cup of coffee, un verre de vin, or even a pastisse to fortify themselves for shopping. We quickly pushed ourselves through the crowds to enter the arches into the Place aux Herbes where the market is most active. An hour later, after a full turn of the place, we'd had enough and settled ourselves down on the Boulevard for a leisurely lunch under the plane trees. Unfortunately, the trees were in full bloom and everyone was choking, sneezing, wheezing. But that didn't stop us from a great lunch, including salade croque-monsieur and a pichet of wine to keep our throats cleared. A visit to the market in Uzs is a great way to spend a Saturday in the south of France!
 


Ross, Jim, and Cheri with Joe,
ready to hit the market!
 


 


Of course, on se discute...


M. le Fromageur from one of the
nearby villages specializes
in little goat cheeses, les picodons,
but today he has ostrich eggs to sell...
they're as heavy as marble!
 


 



Mathias the Mime still does his show
on the Place aux Herbes,
enchanting young and old with his
clever jester performance.
