With a local guide, Laetitia led a day trip from the ship docked in Toulon to Bormes-les-Mimosas. It’s a picturesque medieval village on the southern slope of the French Alps with a view of the Cote d’Azurein the distance. Since it was shortly before Christmas, the town was festively decorated for the season. An elaborate nativity scene in a small local church followed a tradition in Provence of including figurines of local townsfolk inthe display.
