An eventful couple of days.
... a few barricades up along the main pedestrian routes. I can imagine how an event like that takes over the city-This made it a little difficult to navigate the city, but we made it to the sights (namely the bluest of blues ocean). The number of boats and yachts in the ocean and the marinas was insane. Everything was prettier and shinier in Monaco. There was a shoe store where all of the ...
