Since taking my first trip in 1971 (Bowler's Wharf-Sharps, Virginia), this one has got to be the weirdest trip I have ever taken (yeah, even stranger than than the trip to Madrid the following year). The plan for the day was to take a day trip into Monaco (and go to Ventimiglia the following afternoon after class). I took a short train ride from Nice to Monaco-Ville. Since Monaco is the size of your average golf course, I walked around and took pictures like crazy in a short period of time. I quickly discovered Monaco was too ritzy for this gool ol'boy (who doesn't care for Richmond's West End for that same reason). I had planned to spend the whole day here, but I thought maybe if I left Monaco early enough I could squeeze in Ventimiglia, Italy that day too.
