Nice, France (May 21 - 23)

Nice was a little touristy for my taste, but Marc* says that this is what has happened to the Provence area of France, that it had been "discovered," and none of the real French people ever take their vacation there anymore! The city was beautiful, of course, and so were the beaches.

Elevator to go up the hill - this shot is a personal favourite

This is frankly perplexing

*Marc was a guy from France who we met in Stockholm, who seemed to be the only other person who actually cooked proper food in the kitchens, and had very French opinions about a lot of things.
