On Friday March 15, 2013, several CEA students and I took a half an hour trip from the centre ville of Aix-en-Provence to the countryside of southern France. We visited a goat farm and were lucky enough to indulge in some homemade provincial goat cheese! Tout va bien dans le sud de la France!

Me in Provence! Le Mistral (the infamous northern wind currents) was blowing on this day so it was super chilly. Good thing I brought my beret!
