Today I woke up and read a bit. I didn’t really want to do anything so I went online and then saw a couple of people wanted to go to Monaco and I thought, “Why not?”. We met up two hours later and took bus 100.
When we got to Monte Carlo we headed to the Office de Tourisme then walked around to the Hotel de Paris area and entered a Casino to look around for a few minutes, then back out and past Chanel, took a picture of the scenery, took a picture of a reflective ball in a pool, headed back towards the Office de Tourisme, down some escalators into a shopping center.
All the stores were closed (because it was Sunday) but I wasn’t planning on buying anything from there anyway; they were all designer brands and it was fun to look around.
We then walked towards the Jardin Exotique but got lost and ended up in this Sunday market set-up with pretty nice things bon marché. I want to go back and get scarves and the fluffy panda sweater and a sucre-citron crêpe.
It was getting late so we headed towards our bus stop and after a few stumbles and help from strangers we made our way to the bus. The bus driver was mean (or more precisely gruff and super impatient); there was minor confusion regarding how the bus passes worked. It was a lovely day all in all.
