So today we, that is nick and I, this guy named Evan from Michigan, and a guy named Luis from Miami, went to Antibes. We had heard that there was a sandy beach there, and we thought that'd be nice, since Nice had only rocky beaches. We cruised out around 11, after nick and i checked the status of the trains earlier this morning. the trains in france have been on strike for sevaral days, and many people are having to stay where they are for more time. we found out we could get a train tomorrow, and it will likely work. anyways, we get to antibes after about an hour...its south of nice, maybe about half way to st. tropez. once there, we found a really nice beach, and passed out for a few hours. there were lots of people doing the same, but it seemed like no americans...i don't remember hearing any english. the water was really nice too...it was a very gradual beach...as we could walk out prob like 100 yards. we stayed there till about 6, got some beers and bread and ate in a ncie park later...then back to our hostel in Nice. we went out tonight with some kids we met at the hostel...most of em from dublin, and a few from canada. we went out to a few bars and hung out with some locals...though mostly other kids like us. not a lot of places to go out in nice though, but it was fun anyways. tomorrow we get up early and head to the train station, on our way to paris. Evan flyes home from paris on friday, and luis is crusing with us to paris...so we are all gonna party in paris tomr (thru) night. should be a good time. So anyways that's all for now...nice was cool after all ... just the first day sucked.
