Where I stayed
Hotellerie de Plein Air "Le Mistral"
The first thing we did was walk down to the water. It wasn't really hot enough to swim, but I touched the water just so I could say I touched the Mediterranean Sea. Once everyone got their pictures and whatnot, we came back up to street level and a bunch of people wanted to climb a big hill to see a waterfall. After all those stairs up to Sacré Cœur, I wasn't really feeling the idea of climbing a bunch of stairs again, so I stayed back and read on a bench. The weather was perfect, and it was really nice to just sit by the water for a while.
Once the big group came back down the hill, we walked around to try to find a place for lunch
After lunch, we met back up with the rest of our Contiki people and wandered around some more. A bunch of the boys went to H&M where Nicole chose outfits for them to wear to Monaco (DJ bought a bow tie). We also spent some time in a McDonald's for the free wi-fi (but their shake machine wasn't working, so I couldn't get any ice cream or a McFlurry or anything. Boo.). Eventually we made it back on the 3:38 train to Biot, which was just as packed as the one in the morning had been.
Dinner was at 5:00, and it was some kind of meat (Pork maybe?) with cheesy potatoes, green beans, and corn. Dessert was a little roll/cake type thing.
After dinner, we went straight onto the coach and into Monaco. Because of the Grand Prix just ending that day, there was nowhere to park and we had to walk really far to get to the casino
Then I heard there was a group of people going for ice cream, so I tagged along because I never pass up ice cream. I got mango and raspberry ice cream, and it was really good. Then I went back to the meeting place and sat with the Singapore girls until it was time to go back to the hotel. I think I was in bed by around midnight tonight.
