Nice part 1

May 7th, 2010

Over bank holiday weekend a couple of my friends and I went to visit our pal in Nice. The weather sucked, but we had the best time focusing heavily on cheese, wine and amaretto sours. Went on lots of walks, the market, had a picnic on the rocks, got completely hammered on long island iced teas… Standard French mini-break activities really.
