Cannes to Monte Carlo

We took the train today along the Mediterranean to Monte Carlo. It is in a beautiful setting. 

Monte Carlo is clearly a high income locale. We walked around a bit and checked out one of the casinos. The card gods were on our side and we won €150. 

The main Montre Carlo Casino charges €10 to get in and then the minimum bet is €25 so we just checked out the lobby. 

There are lots of high end shops here and lots of fancy cars. 

For dinner we started with octopus salad. 

Then for the main course fish and pasta. 

On the walk back to the hotel we saw two Maseratis. I suspect we were on the Grand Prix route because they seemed to be enjoying shifting down into the turn. We had desert and a nightcap in the hotel bar before heading back to our room.
