Taken on the way to Monaco
An evening excursion down the road from Nice to a little place called Monaco. This country is famous for its Formula One race, dodgy tax rules and the Monte Carlo casino. The city itself though is absolutely spectacular at night, and the amount of money in this tiny place is astounding! To own one of the yachts in that harbour… we’ll keep dreaming! The casino itself isn’t actually that big on the inside, quite old fashioned compared to the brash cheapness of Star City. But the stakes are not small, and some people bet very big! We lost 50 euros quick smart on roulette before earning most of it back on the old school pull-down poker machine which was quite fun! Outside of the casino was packed with luxury cars - Ferraris, Rolls Royce, Bentley, BMW, Mercedes, Audi, etc. We decided to leave our Lamborghini back at the hotel to save making a scene!
