Allez les Bleus

Tues 22nd. We spent the morning in Monte Carlo and got a good look at the principality that covers an area of less than 2 square kms. A long walk to visit the royal palace rewarded us with great views looking back into the city.  Monaco exudes wealth and is a nice place to visit but we didnt think it would be great to live there unless you were a squillionaire. We headed out of Monaco on a short trip into France to a place 70kms away to a place called Grasse, the perfume capital of the world. The girls did a tour of a perfume factory and came out smelling delightful. Our camp for the night was a short distance away in Le Rouret where we stayed in a lovely little stone cottage with relaxing gardens. We had time in the late afternoon sun to sample a bottle of Rose and a tasty cheeseboard before heading out to our dinner date with our frinds from Chch.
