i want to go to the seaside
this is in Constanta, a city by the sea in Romania…more of it on Picasa
(view of the Monte Carlo port from the garden behind the Casino)
What did I know about Monaco before visiting it…?
It is a small country…a tiny country? In reality it seems even smaller that one would think… just checked it on google maps – it would take around 50 min to walk from one end/beginning to the other (and of course not on its narrow side). That it borders only France…and the sea.
Then… it is a rich country or at least attracts rich people from other countries. And many from Moldova would know that the Rolls Royce of a rich grown up kid / businessman from Moldova was spotted parked by the Monte Carlo Casino. Well, no big deal…but being from a country considered to be the poorest one in Europe (and poor on international level) it is somehow fun to see pictures of cars with Moldovan plates parked in front of that casino.
So, yeah, the casino is the most famous info about Monaco… and the Monte Carlo Rally.
Oh, and the wedding of their Prince was a popular news this past summer…
