... the marble ranges near Pisa. This area is called Carrara and is where all the marble the Romans used came from so one can only imagine how large these mountains were before all the marble was taken. However at first glance you think there is snow on the top of the mountains but it is the white marble. Apparently there is still heaps of marble remaining so we aren't going to run out anytime soon. We are passing rolling hills ...
... and Meli from Argentina, and hanging on the beach with Juliann from Holland, Marie Julie and Jens from Belgium has been a great way to practice French and learn about their cultures. And of course, hanging with my roommate Sarka we share Czech-U.S. information all the time. I am also constantly reminded that people really are the same wherever they come from, and as soon as you realize you have something in common with someone, ...
After our escape from the smoky air of northern Thailand, we have returned to our little haven in the south of France. Our timing worked out well as we arrived ...
... Chateau (haha) close by that was once the site of a fortress and citadel but now is a nice park with just a few vestiges of the fortress left. One thing that remained though was the waterfall that I think was installed there back in the day, I'm pretty sure it wasn't natural anyway. I also went to see the old cathedral but it was having some work done so I didn't get to see much of it.
My last day and the day of the doctor I went to Monaco. I wish it had ...

nothing charming about it.So we stuck to the freeway.
Crossing the border was a non event - into a tunnel on the Italian side, out of

sprawling metropolis. Nothing ar all what ...

This is a great location at a great price. The rooftop terrace and garden dining area add to the charm of this place. It is in easy walking distance to the sea front and the town of Menton. The rooms themselves are simply furnished and if you shut all the shutters on the windows you can cut out the outside noise and light. In the hot weather though that could be a problem as there is a lot of street noise in the area and it does get hot with everything shut up! The price is great and it does include a lovely continental breakfast. The owners/managers are very hospitable and are happy to help out with tea/coffee trays for you to take up to your room and even bottles of water. Ask about the walking trip to Monaco, sounds like a great sea front journey, unfortunately we couldn't take it.
