Kings Cake in Provence

What is a Kings Cake?

Colorful January in Provence!  No, Provence is not a tropical island but it does have an array of colors even in the middle of winter.  I’m talking about a particular delight in all French bakeries that help cheer the soul during the long and grey month of January.  Yesterday, I went around to a few bakeries in my hometown to get some pictures to show you just what I’m talking about.

Some things just have to be experienced – photos, as beautiful as they may be, just can’t speak as loudly as the place itself. Especially when you are visiting a troglodyte in Provence.

I opened the door and immediately felt transcended to a completely different world.  The silence was incredible; nothing distracted me from imagining the site full of busy people from the past.

Is it really possible to go somewhere and let time stand still around me.    They say in Provence things move at a slower pace.  I remember what Peter Mayle wrote about Provence in A Good Year:

There is nowhere else in the world where you can keep busy doing so little and enjoying it so much.
