It was a rather relaxing day, as the Ironman triathalon competition basically shut the whole Riviera down, LOL. Seriously though, it did, from like 8 am to almost 9 pm, the whole Promenade was shut down, the bus service, etc. Which leads me to my next sentence: I can't get to Rome because the trains were mistakenly double booked due to the glut because of the competition, and we did not confirm first. Big time bummer.
I am going to try and make an attempt tomorrow morning, but it's not looking too good. If it can't be done, I will just take it as a sign that it was not meant to be this time around, and I will get there on another trip. Can't really gripe over things beyond my control, so that's that.
The flipside of the coin is that because of the Ironman, I was able to walk around through old Nice, which is very picturesque and pleasant, and have a gelati! Yes, they are quite good here, I will give them that. I had a pecan and praline gelati, which was quite nice.
Well, I am not going to go on. The wifi here is just intolerable, and I just lost the original post I had written, and I am too tired to go through the events of the day again. Just remember folks, I am on public wifi here, and this is what happens when the government owns everything: it all goes to crap.
On that note, I bid everyone a good night, pleasant dreams, and bonne nuit.
