London to Nice
Friday 5th September 2014
Eurostar from London to Paris in the morning, lunch at an Alsatian brasserie next to Gare de Lyon, then TGV on to Nice in the afternoon.
Nice and Monaco September 2014
In St. Pancras. Erika's got the tickets.

In Paris now, lunch at a place near Gare de Lyon called Les Relais d'Alsace. Here's a picture of the bar.
The giant (and very expensive) beer I ordered. This turned out to be more of a jug for pouring rather than the stein I thought it would be.
Me and the large beer.
The flammenkuche I ordered. Like a half hearted pizza, really.
Chie and her French Onion soup.
Yes we're in France. Doesn't it all look very French? What could be more French than large frothing tankards of beer?
On the TGV to Nice now.
Erika having a late lunch, as she was napping during ours.

Chie and Erika playing with some modelling clay we got as a gift with a kids magazine I bought for Erika this morning.
Must be pastis time!

Our modelling clay animals - an elephant, an octopus and a rabbit.
On arrival in Nice now. A bit late for Erika but remember in the UK it's not yet 8pm!
Erika dozed off in her buggy, and it was a very warm and pleasant evening, so we went out for dinner at a Moroccan (I think?) restaurant called Alounak. Here's me there.
Chie and her tagine.
My vegetarian tagine.
Me outside the Gare de Nice Ville. Our hotel was very close by.
