Sightseeing in Montpellier

The wall on this house is painted to look like a fancier house.
The conference ended at around 18:00, so I had the evening free of work and walked around looking at some of the sights in Montpellier.

Montpellier was hot, so many people wore little clothing.


I asked the tourist information if they had any place in Montpellier where people did magic. They told me about a magic shop that was also a magic school. The owner was very nice, but he did not have time to talk to me much because he had many classes where he taught kids how to do magic.

There were even shops selling Japanese things, like geta and yukata.

Plenty of churches, as everywhere in Europe.

More Christian symbols than in Sweden (or Japan, of course, since no one is Christian here).

The was a triumphal arch.

Lots of nice buildings.

Church.

Church with live music on the stairs.

More nice buildings.

The opera house.

A carousel close to my hotel.

There were lots of street performers on the big square. This guy did a kinds of juggling. Most performers did break dancing.

More juggling with fire.

The opera house again.
