Yes, this café is in Arles. But you placed it...in ALÈS! This image makes me remember an adventure thirty years ago. I was driving from Nîimes to Alès. In Nîimes, I saw a young English who was hiking. - Where are you going? - Alès. During the travel, he explains (he didn't speak French) that he had to meet friends to go to... Marseille! It was difficult to unterstand his plan (we went in the opposite direction). We arrive to Alès. I think it would be better to show him the map. Seeing it, he understands the mistake. He wanted to go to... Arles! But he didn't know the good pronunciation. I let him on the road to Nîimes... with some cakes for the night.

Thank you for correcting my mistake. I was so taken with my holiday in Alés that I put it in the wrong place. You were so kind to the travellers I am sure they remember you with much gratitude. Mérci
