We have made a great friend Andreas who is as mad as they come, but a great laugh and great fun to be with. He seems to be a permanent fixture in the camp site. He also seems to be the welcome party. As soon as you arrive you know Andreas.
We just realised that we have been in Menton just under 2 weeks and still it seems like just a couple of days.
Menton is one of those places that just keeps you here. Time doesn't seem to run its normal coarse here.
Even the shops are affected. When the shops should be shut they are open, when they should be open they are shut. When its a rainy day they are shut, when it is sunny they are also shut. The opening hours most of the shops display are 9.30 -12.30 then 4.30-6.30, but this seems to be only a rough guide as even the locals seem to be disorientated by the hours of business.
Time does not exit here in any kind of order, you open when you want and you close when you want.
We love it here, but still we miss our beloved Spain.
We are finally leaving this confusing little town on Monday and heading to Interlaken, for some more clouds and some hiking in the mountains. Back to work we go.
