The music festival in Cannes is now over and I'm sittinig in my hotel room in Nice. Today we spent the day walking around the Cote d'Azure (or whatever body of water is in Nice) and shit if it wasn't amazing. Contrary to what I'd been told (or warned about), the folks in France have been unbelievably nice. It's simply a different world over here. As I sat on the water today, I think I had one of those moments. All stress was swept away, the waves were crashing a mere ten feet from me and the sun was blazing. We stopped and had a beer on a patio. We saw two dogs brawl. We saw every single person in our vicinity smoking butts.

Nina Simone's now playing. Dinner awaits. A pub after that. Monocco tomorrow.
