Today breakfast on the balcony. Descending the 5 levels of stairs in our apartment building we proceed to the tourist bureau. Organizing tours for the the next few days. As it is raining this morning we make our way to the shopping precinct. An easy walk from our accommodation. Strolling along the luxury shopping streets, coffee on the avenue then a Chinese/ Thai lunch. The boys leave us to purchase the produce for our home cooked spaghetti meal. We wander back to the apartment , to our delight the lift is working - the smallest elevator I have ever seen or been in. Crunchy bread, French cheeses, olives, salami and red wine = picnic in our lounge room with a fabulous view of the Mediterranean Sea. Dinner, a delicious entree of snails followed by a spaghetti masterpiece . With many glasses of french wine. Another good day in France . The word for today is bonjour - hello .
