A Nice Holiday

Day 1: Place Garibaldi for a glass (or two) of the local rose, amused by Pierre la fou (who seemed to be a regular guy who goes about his business lounging on the pavement in one of the small streets with bars – forgot to take a photo), a walk along Promenade des Anglais at sunset, small detour to see the yachts (and wondering how the other half live) before having dinner in the old town. Took a walk back to  the hotel via the artsy and “tower-y” part of the old town.

Day 2: Explored the old town – Cours Saleya market, a drink of the local wine before a quick but delicious artisan pizza for lunch, a hike up the waterfall with panoramic views over the old town, then Palais Lascaris, a gorgeous Baroque building now a museum, a noisette coffee for a perk-me-up, then got caught in the rain but while taking shelter, we were entertained by the local tango dancing association, then another happy hour rose wine, before cheese and beef fondue for dinner, capped off by a couple of shots of raspberry and yellow plum schnapps (second glass free courtesy of friendly waiter). Whew!
