The next phto stop is at the famous casino.

I'm sure, no-one following this thread is paparazzi-like interesting in watching famous people going there ...

... or staying in in the hotel next to the casino or in their cars ...

For someone from more northern Central Europe like me - it's really surprising to see the nature 1½ hour (by plane Laughing ) away from home

The plastics, however, aren't so different at all

Some houses which drew my attraction - 'normal' houses of 'average' citizens (about 8,000 people are of Monaco nationality, about 33,000 living there constantly) - and which you could see from the streets.

You can't avoid that e.g. tourists sometimes spoil a photo - if you don't mind this little excurs in between - or modern stuff etc 'damages' a pretty scene.

Take for instance this (really just average) photo - though a rather nice scenery:

Now, look a bit closer.


I mean: look here:

See what I mean?

And even to "hide" those lamps as you see them now took me quite some time .... and funny contortions.


Thats Villefranche-sur-Mer, my photos will follow in a moment.

Like in many other medieval towns, it was already rather dark at 3:30PM in Villefranche's old town's small lanes ...
