The latest installment of Paul’s adventures in Euroland:
So before we deal with the day’s shenanigans that has no doubt dominated the headlines we shall start with the good stuff. Marseille has nice weather at least and so today I battled through it during the daytime and headed for a good uphill 45 minute walk across town to its highest point. The Basilique Notre-Dame De La Garde. At the top of a hill. A very steep climb indeed.
The reason for this hard slog was to be able to take in the best views of Marseille and boy did it deliver on that front.

Spectacular views of the whole city, it’s harbour and even the velodrome. Tonights stadium for the match.
