Yesterday was NUTS!!!!!!!! Ans and I went to Monaco, a small country that is only one major city and is sortof in France but still it's own country. SO awesome. It was really fancy there and sooooo crazy. Monaco is run by the Prince of Monaco and no one there pays tax or something crazy like that?!! We went there to check out the Monaco Grand Prix, the Prince's Car Museum and the area in and around the Monte Carlo Casino. It was REALLY cool, but at the same time soooo weird to be there. Eventually Ans and I had a long chat while looking over the harbour of thousands of million dollar yachts, and after seeing our 30th Ferrari of the day... the 15 year old in me is SO excited about the fast cars and expensive boats and so on... but the (almost) 25 year old in me is totally disgusted by the over-extravagance, the greed, the fact that some people have SO much, while other people can have so little. Very strange indeed. So yes, Monaco was cool to visit, but it was (and I'm not over-emphasizing), actually MORE extravagant and insane than Hollywood. Soooooo crazy.
Anyway we got back to Nice in the evening and partied hard. It was Friday night and we had an awwwesssome time. Chillin' at the hostel, meeting lots of cool new people, and then going down to the beach to hang out and out to a bar called the Blue Whale (which closed at 4am) for some awesome live music. It was crazy and nuts and super fun. I looooooooove it here in Nice. The weather today is rainy so we are hittin' up some internet instead of running around like usual. Good times.
