We had lunch a little burger joint - delicious and affordable and simply called Burger Bar. It was chosen by Laura, possibly because her little son Louis was with us and she said he liked this restaurant :) We hung out with Laura, her son and a friend of hers for a couple of hours before parting ways - but funnily enough we made plans to come back to Aix the following evening! Still, we wanted to do a bit more sightseeing before heading back to Marseille, so Steve and I wandered off into old Aix for a while...

|Cathedral St Sauveur|
After wandering around the Cathedral we made one more quick stop at the chunk of wall known as "Vestiges du Rempart" - the remainder of Aix's medieval fortifications. Honestly there really wasn't much to see, but hey...we were in the area :)
From there it was back to the Cours Mirabeau. We stopped for a glass of wine, wandered by the market tents that had popped up on the wide sidewalks, and eventually grabbed a waffle before catching the shuttle back to Marseille.
