Nice 6.15.2007


Last planned day in Nice, we wake late . . . again.
The fellows feel even more ill as rain falls heavily outside.
We decide to keep the room another night for more recovery time before continuing on to Italy.
So ride the elevator down to the front desk to make our arrangements.

Expired key upon returning to the room and knocks

were greeted by the guys already relaxing.

Tired and worn from our whirlwind of travels, we spend some time in hijinx
with LED light headbands as excellent props.

The rain fell heavy and steady with comforting sounds and smells.
 The reflections in the large window provide unique photo opportunities.

As the rain clears, our heads do as well.
Feeling a bit better, we set out
for a second attempt at seeing the
and its Onion Domes.

When we arrive, the Cathedral is still open!
A fee of 3 Euros to enter, but the cashier cuts us a break – 2 for 1!
Inside, visitors are blinded by all the gold.
Every wall is covered with ornate and luxurious devotional details.
No photos!
Cameras are not allowed inside, but a sneaky tourist published this image online.

Deemed one of the most magnificent Cathedrals outside of mother Russia,

St. Nicholas became home to many relics after communism took hold in the early 1900’s.
Closing time, we are asked to be on our way.
 On the way back to Etap, we stop at the train station
to secure tickets for tomorrow’s ride on to Pisa, Italy.

News from home:

We have a laugh and wonder how Parisians must feel…


Another night of self-catering
and early to bed to prepare for departure the next morning.
