I have so many photographs I haven't posted. Here are some from Dubai, Nice, and Monaco.


Edna in front of the Burj Dubai Fountain


One of the cats (Kali, I presume) knows our initial.


Silly saltwater fish at the Atlantis Aquarium


Trying on glasses, even though I already have glasses


Burj Dubai, just before dusk


Tiny shell found by Edna


I made some zen in the sand


Then I went to Nice


We headed for the train station to get to Monaco


I didn't have a jacket, but I had lots of scarves.


From the train window


Monaco looks like this.


Proof I was there


Then these clouds rolled in


The clouds sorta made everything even more colorful


I was afraid my saffron risotto would be too plain, but it came garnished with gold


Some night color in Nice

I have to say my first thought of Monaco was "that's really ugly". I guess I always thought it was more beautiful. But then, it's small and tons of people want to squish in there so I should not be that surprised. As always, love your pics! I never comment, but I'm always looking.

So now I'm even more curious than I was when it was first posted (which was already representative of some non-negligible quantity): what was up with that later (but now apparently redacted) post you made?

Nice memories!

I made the same train journey a couple years ago - Cannes to Monaca, via Juan les Pins and Antibbes. Gorgeous views from the train and yes, Monaco is a concrete mess with a fair share of con men running around the place...!

I did meet some wonderful ladies there who were very kind to me. It's a very walkable town - provided your shoes are comfortable. Lots of hilly roads and off track paths with steep slopes

Nice pictures - pun intended

Is "cinesex" a false cognate or is that a porno theater?

Oh, I'd say almost certainly the latter.

"but it came garnished with gold"
Ahh.. see when I read the tweet I couldn't quite picture it. So what did you do with the gold? And how'd the risotto taste?
