So, in the preprogrammed posting during my absence, here is a new episode from our wonderful stay on the French Riviera (Côte d’Azur) on the invitation by Jilly; this time with some shots from Monte Carlo. Please note that Jilly also has a special Monte Carlo blog!
It’s difficult to imagine the present economic crises when you visit a place like this. We also somehow behaved as if there is no crisis and had some champagne at the “Bar Américain” of the Hôtel de Paris, followed by dinner at the Café de Paris. Fortunately there are days like these!
Most of the buildings around the “Place du Casino”, the Casino, the Opera and the Grand Hôtel, were designed by Charles Garnier, the creator of the Paris “Opera Garnier” (see previous post).
The place was in full preparation for the Formula 1 race next weekend with stands and a lot of protections built up which made it difficult to get any larger nice views for photos.
If you want to have a closer look on some of these photos, please go to Ipernity.
Time to wish you a nice weekend!
