Paradise on the Cote D'Azur

The most earth-shaking bit of this weekend was the U2 Concert which we watched at the Stade Charles Erhmann in Nice. It was quite a party! U2 had invited Bill Gates, Elton John, the Beckhams, so we had an entire galaxy of stars to watch, but it meant that security was pretty tight. They removed all the caps from your mineral water bottle so that nobody could throw it! Celine (Fab's little sister) is staying with us this week, all the U2 photos are on her camera though, so I can put them up in another post.

Fab used to live in Nice and work in Monaco, so he showed us around a bit for the rest of the weekend. Of course we went to the beach, which is where you see us in this photo.

I can't believe you were there...
I was not far, near Cannes, and I saw the signs everywhere "Traffic Jam to be expected due to the U2 concert".
I think it's the first time I saw an ad on the motorway information board !
