Today was yet another long, and sunshine filled day in beautiful Nice...and marks a milestone in our trip -- we're more than 2/3rds done! We got off to a bit of a late start, and headed out of the hostel shortly after noon. We walked down to the bus stop to catch a bus to the train station. Two buses later (because we missed our stop the first time) we hopped on the train to the lovely medieval town of Antibes. From the train station, we walked to the yacht harbour and along the ancient sea walls to the fisherman's port. After walking through the large arch entrance, we walked through many covered fruit markets and outdoor cafes. We didn't spend much time here though because we were eager to get back on the train and head 10 minutes further to Cannes.
For those of you who don't know, the world-renowned Cannes Film Festival is happening right now. What an experience that was! It happens each May, and is attended by many well known celebrities. We arrived a bit late, but were able to catch the last part of the Red Carpet entrances. We caught glimpses of Michael Moore, the mom from Little Miss Sunshine, and Andie Mcdowell. However, we're hoping to go again at some point and maybe get some pictures of some bigger stars.
We left Cannes mid-evening, and arrived back at the hostel shortly before 10pm. After ordering another 5 Euro pizza, we sat around and visited some more -- the hostel has a great big common space which is awesome for meeting people. Hope all is going well back home. We're looking forward to seeing all of you in less than 10 days!
Love Kare & Kristin
P.S. Because our picture files are so large, we've exceeded the allotted space for uploads aka, we won't be able to put up any more pictures. Sooo, you'll just have to wait in anticipation to see them all when we get back! Sorry!
