Remarks: Southbound highway A-7. Behind the hills in the distance there's the city of Marseille. Also visible Marseille airport. The airport is located next to the industrial area where I had to unload my sauce bottles.
Location: Vitrolles, France.
Date: June 2007.
Remarks: There it is. The industrial area I had to go for. Due to the fact the Marseille-area is not the most safest, I put my camera away from this point. The last few months a couple of Hartog & Bikker colleagues had been robbed in Vitrolles. According to the information I know from some of my friends in North-America you can compare the Marseille-area with the Los-Angeles area. Very unsafe!!
Location: Near Marseille, France.
Date: June 2007.
Remarks: Southbound highway A-55. After unloading in Vitrolles, H & B sended me to La Ciotat for a load destinated to Koblenz in Germany. Now to get in La Ciotat you have to pass the city of Marseille. Unfortunally I took the A-55. Unfortunally, because at that moment I didn't know that the A-55 is closed for trucks near the Marseille-citycentre. The other option, the A-7, brings you also to the centre, so what the heck. I enjoyed my payed vacation as much as I can, starting with this pic....Nice view again!

Remarks: Eastbound highway D-4. That was a pitty. A nice highway A-55, but closed for big rigs. That brought me straight through the Marseille city-centre.
