Nice is so Nice!
Bonjour from the glittering Cote d’Azur! After a breezy and safe arrival, our group has settled in nicely to our beautiful dorms, housed in the palace of a former Russian tzar! In between meeting new friends and getting settled in our dorms looking out to the seaside, we managed to squeeze in a special viewing of the Brazil vs. Chile match of the World Cup — and happily celebrated a great match together.

After a good night’s rest we are ready to take on les galets – the pebbles of the famous Nice beach — and take a dip in the Mediterranean. A bientôt!

Le soleil toute l’année…
They say the sun is always shining on the Côté d’Azur, but today seems to be an exception! A few clouds aren’t getting us down (they never last long anyway), and shopping in Vieux Nice is just the solution. After a walk down the Promenade des Anglais to see the Ironman competition, we spent the afternoon wandering the charming streets of the Old city, taking in the sights, sounds, and smells of our beautiful city. And sure enough – out came the sun in plenty of time to profit from some beach time before dinner on the famed Cours Saleya. Bisous!
