We got a bonus day in Paris while waiting for our night train.

We decided the Pablo Picasso museum would be nice. On our way there we got thirsty and decided we should channel our inner Hemmingway and perhaps have a couple drinks on our way. We took to a few different cafes and enjoyed some bubbly.

This was at Cafe 3 serving champagne.

We enjoyed Picassos artwork-as a side note- he seemed to be quite interested in boobs.

We decided to stop in a park that was surrounded by a castle. It was a gorgeous day.  I may have been in the need of a wee nap due to the many glasses of champagne.

This pic is embarrassing but tells the truth.

After a refreshing nap in a park on the ground, we headed out for dinner. I thought I should try the local delicacy- so yes, I had tartare. This is completely raw ground beef.   I took the first bite with really long teeth, but after that it was fine.

Mind over matter

We caught the night train to Nice.  We hoped we might have a bunk to ourselves but unfortunately we had to share with 2 other gents.  Overall I would say the train was ok to experience, but I probably wouldn’t go out of my way to do that again.

This pic of Tom and Francois cracks me up

This pic of Tom and Francois cracks me up. I took it secretly. 

So now we are in Nice.  We had a beach day today and plan on having another one tomorrow.  Tom has his sunglasses on all the time on the beach as he likes to look around.  Here on the French Riviera the ladies don’t wear their tops.  More boobs.

I’m immature

    When in Rome, do as the Romans do. So, Keri, did you do as the nice folks in Nice do so that you would not stand out as a Canadian Tourist?

    Years ago, with a group of grade nines, we ended up in an area with a nude or topless beach. We thought the kids would stay away, but one afternoon as my colleague and I were enjoying the beach lounge chairs, a group of our boys breezed past us, holding their eyes like blinders. One boy called out, “Don’t worry. We’re not looking!”
