marseille, france - seafood, grit & graffiti

Marseille is a place I've wanted to visit after watching the excellent French flick 'Marius' (a young man who works for his father in a cafe at the Marseille port discovers his life-long female best friend is in love with him, sleeps with her for a while, and then abandons her for his one true love, the sea, by signing up to work on a ship which will be at sea for years).

We braved the heavy July heat and flew to France for a few days in Marseille, hanging out at the port, taking in the graffiti, and loading up on seafood pasta. The rest of our trip was spent kayaking the Calanques national park, hiking in Verdon National Park, and basking in a cactus park at the top of the world. But let's not get ahead of ourselves. So, Marseille:

We rented a cheapo airbnb: a sixth floor walk up that was hot as hell and had no ventilation, but which had this private rooftop with a heck of a view and a hammock. Dreams really do come true.
