It's Nice

Cheap Dinner In Niece

Yep, Nice, France, the end of our trail. You know, famous for salade niçoise, being on the Cote d'Azur and brilliant summer sun, which is nowhere to be found today (as illustrated below).

Tiring trip from St. Louis to Chicago to Paris to Nice. All flights were late, although we didn't miss any connections. Terminal 2 at Charles de Gaulle Airport is a terrible place to get around and stunningly ugly from the outside. (Part of the cavernous Terminal 2F, where we left for Nice, is below. A very nice information lady in 2A, where we came in, said it was five minutes walk away. Try 25, sweetie.) Got hopelessly lost trying to find our hotel from the Nice airport despite having two GPS systems, a Garmin and my iPhone with Google Maps. No energy to go to the city center for dinner tonight so we went to the supermarket around the corner and got sandwiches, fruit and wine.

I spoke to several actual French people today in their native language and some of them understood me. I'm thrilled. Bed in a moment. Tourism tomorrow.

Bienvenue ! I feel for you, CDG isn't the nicest airport but you're sleeping blissfully now so that's the main thing!

je suis d'accord avec toi l'aeroport CDG est bien laid et surtout pas pratique.
reposez vous bien , et bonnes vacances a Nices

Bad weather too here in Avignon. Hope it gets better tomorrow.
Glad you had a safe (if not beautiful) trip.

Hopefully you've had good weather today, Bob. Been quite hot here so fingers crossed for tomorrow. You'll doubtless find me in the bar in Gorbio tomorrow morning whenever you get there. And our corner table is booked at the Restaurant Beausejour across the 'place' for 12h30. Can't wait to see you both again xxxx
