Snapshot: sunset in Marseille

Posted in Posts by James Benedict Brown on 11 March, 2007


This photo illustrates just one of the reasons I took two days off from Strasbourg (a long held to desire to travel overnight in a couchette, Tintin style, was another). This photo was taken from the armchair of room seventeen in the Hotel Richelieu in Marseille the week before last. This modest little two star hotel is one of just a few buildings on Corniche John Kennedy in Marseille that does not have the road between it and the sea. The soundtrack to my time in Marseille will forever be remembered as the waves crashing on the rocks below my open window. A short walk away from the touristy, trashy and noisy Old Port, the Richelieu is one of the few hotels I intend to revisit. The room is indicated in this photo of the hotel below.
