Vieux Nice


Vieux Nice = Old Nice

In “the book.”

This is the type of neighborhood where you want to get lost. Don’t use a map. Just wander around and see where the winding streets take you. You can’t really get lost because of the geography, so just go with the flow!

We walked through a market on the edge of Vieux Nice.

I stopped in a chuch that was built in 1640. I lit a candle there for the baby of a colleague. (This one’s for you Kaylee Hope!)

I saw maybe a dozen art studio/stores. I love to buy from local, struggling artists. I didn’t buy anything though because I saw too many beautiful things and couldn’t decide.

I saw pretty fountains and was mooned by a pigeon who was bathing in one of them.

I ate passion fruit gelato.

I ate in a Dutch restaurant. (Yep, this was a bit strange in this part of France, but it was tasty.)

We climbed up to Castle Hill and saw beautiful panoramic views of the Mediterranean. We also stopped and played in a playground.

We saw a Shiba Inu as we were walking down the hill. He was just as stuck-up as my Shiba. I always miss my pup when I am traveling. (My prayer to all of the missing Shibas and humans in Japan.)
