Roussillon, France

Hello everyone, it's finals weekend so I won't have time to write a long blog tonight, but here are some pictures from last night when my parents and I went to the city of Roussillon for dinner.  Roussillon means "Red City" and fits the place perfectly.  The reason Roussillon is called "Red City" is because all the ochre mines are around and within it.  There are tall, textured cliffs of piercing pink and deep yellow.  It was nice to have a change of aesthetics from entire stone cities of Lacoste, Gourdes, Bonnieux, etc.  In Roussillon, all of the buildings are pink, red, or yellow.  And if a building is stone, the grout in between the stone is pink!  Every corner I turned I was delighted with the sharp color of the city, and the different colors residents chose to paint the shutters to compliment their ochre-clad house.
