Altab Ali Park.
The park is named after Altab Ali, a young man murdered in a racial attack in 1978. This illustration shows the Martyrs’ Monument, which was set up in 1999. It symbolises a mother protecting her children with the orb of the sun in the background, and is a smaller replica of Shahid Minar (Martyrs’ Monument) in Dhaka in Bangladesh.

Even though I know I’m not going to buy anything I pop into the indoor market in Sainte Maxime.
It’s not just because it’s cool in here but the sights, smells and sounds are in their own way as addictive as morning coffee.
A grotto of meat, fruit, fish and fromage.

I’ve only been in one casino, well only one where gambling takes place. I’ve been in hundreds of the little Casino supermarkets scattered across France.
The casino I’ve been in where the roulette wheels spin is the one in Monte Carlo. It was thirty years ago. I left my jacket, my money in its pockets, in the cloakroom and strolled around taking in the atmosphere. It’s a great building but really nothing more than a glorified betting shop for the rich to visibly pour their money away in.
And here on the front at Sainte Maxime is the dilapidated but still in its own way impressive Casino building, that for all the world could, inside, be full of vegetables, tobacco and frozen fish. I don’t go in but wander on, sit on the promenade wall and watch people for a while.
