    I went to Marseilles for the three-day weekend, and I thought I'd share some pictures I took while I was there. I hope you enjoy them.

    Oh cool, I like the "one for iGary" the best. The boats and orientation of the boat reminds me very much of the Canadian "dime", or 10 cent coin. :)

    I'll keep the restaurant in mind, although I have a hard time spending 50 Euros a person. I'm all for it, but my wife isn't a big shellfish eater, and most of these are 2 person minimums. I had some excellent rascasse when I was there, and the tajines are also nice (thanks to North Africans :)).
