je ne sais pas!
well here i am sitting in the top level of a small internet cafe nestled in the backstreets of the hussleing and busseling village of Nice. I have circumvented the challenge of using a french keyboard, which is absurdly designed, not even the french guy knew the combination to use an underscore. the @ symbol is done by pressing ctrl+alt+shift+8...weird, so he dug up an english keyboard for me to use :)
For some reason whenever i go to desrcibe nice my brain goes to say it is 'nice' which makes me look as though i am trying to pull a very bad punt.
This is my second day in France, and i have spent most of that time on a train, stopping of in montpellier last night, a smallish commuter town in between barcelona and nice. I am supposed to be staying here in nice for another night, however; there is not much to do here if you are by yourself, more of a lounging around beach atmosphere. So i think i am going to make my way up into italy, to Trieste.
so yes, not really much to say about france, as i have not really ecplored it all that much. Oh besides. they have this juice brand called volva, so on the bottle it says "volva juice" and i found that v.amusing. :) and they also say "retard" as apposed to delay, so at the train station on the sign it said "retard probable" and i also found this v.amusing :)
It is much more expensive here as aposed to Spain and no where near as nice ( see i can't help myself). that being said i will talk a little about my time in Spain.
It was really amazing, and fun. Especially having someone there who i knew and could chat, explore and spend time with (part of the reason why i am wanting to make my way into trieste sooner). I drank way too much beer there as it was often a fraction of the price of soft drink, and you would get treble the amount, they even had beer vending machines in replacment of softdrink ones.
We decided on taking a day trip, and so went to this cathedral that was built into the side of a mountain the place is called monserate, you have probably heard of it as it is quite famous. This was visualy amazing the views.....sigh. there were mountains everywhere, and there was a walk you could do that took you through old spanish ruins, it was very indicative of something you would find in peru (south america as a whole) and machu pichu.
After that we sort of finished the day with some lebanese food, which is quite common over there and of course...a beer.
Can't wait to upload some photo's for you guys, it's just they don't provide the facilities over here. :(
well until next time, hopefully something a little more exciting to write home about (mind lots of things happen along the way i just forget about them)
all my love and lots more.
