We woke up today on the French Rivera in Mont Carlo. Located east of Nice, France on the northeast coast, Monte Carlo has long served as a major port for the area. In fact our cruise ship, the Nieuw Amsterdam is docked in the old "Port de Hercule." There are accounts of Julius Caesar landing his fleet in the harbor in 43 BC.
Monte Carlo was founded in 1847 ...
... shimmering water and many luxury boats coming and going. We had a late lunch on board, then an afternoon sleep, evening missing out on Happy Hour in the bar.
At 5.30pm we sat on our verandah as we left port, sun on the water, road zigzagging up out of town, snow covered mountain peaks, and the ship's booming echoing against the hills. The dry, barren, sandy soil comes right down to the shoreline, and some of the city streets are so steep there are public lifts and ...

We got several regular pictures while we melted in the heat and then headed back to the bus. Didn't spend much time. It's cool, but not much to do once ...
... pockets but you have no idea how good they are because I had my phone taken out of my bag and didn't feel a thing, only opened my bag once together my purse out to pay for something and in the short time I was paying must have managed to take it out of the pocket of my handbag which holds my phone. Not happy but at least it was not my wallet, from now on will be wearing a money belt under my clothing as they say it is worse in Rome. Have to get a police report ...
