... your average curb. The tunnel they travel through was full of fast cars and on the other side of the barrier was what I am now referring to as bath water. It was by far the clearest and most pristine water I had ever seen. It was colourless. We immediately headed up to the famous hairpin turn from the formula 1 circuit and sat for a while and watched wealth in the form of motor vehicles pass by.

I didn't do much there except stop to take a photo, but it was at night so it isn't even the best view. The ride from Andorra to Monaco was really fun except late last night where we were driving up and down mountains in the van. The van ...
