monte carlo is about what i expected. i wandered around the docks and checked out some pretty fancy boats. it was super humid and i went ashore very early in the day, about 8AM. most places were closed (not that i could afford to go in anyways) but i got a good view of the place on foot. i had an opportunity to practice my french (which is pretty poor) and i was surprised at how many of the signs i could understand. i spent the afternoon by the pool again and waited for the rain. some of the best parts of this vacation have been when i do nothing. laying on the deck of a ship reading and having people bring me mudslides when it’s crazy hot and humid outside is definitely my idea of a good time. note to self: win the lotto and buy a yacht with bar staff.
