Virginia Woolf in Aix en Provence - late May, 1935

from The diary of Virginia Woolf, pages 314-15:

I'm writing at Aix on a Sunday evening, with a band playing & stopping & children shouting, in a too luxurious hotel where the waiters bring one the menu, & I mix my French scandously with odd scraps of my painfully acquired Italian. [...] But now the band has begun again, & we must go down to dine sumptuously off local trout.
