Fancy cars and Japanese tea garden in Monaco

Dsc_0855

I’m in Monte Carlo right now, at the beginning of a one week trip in Provence/Cote d’Azur. Monaco is a gorgeous little principality surrounded by France and the Mediterranean Sea. Grace Kelly is the big royal local hero here—the Academy Award-winning actress became Princess Grace of Monaco in the 50s. I snapped this photo of Monaco’s Japanese tea garden today on my way back from the aquarium. Did you know Monaco is less than one square mile total? It’s tiny! Also, all the cars here are ridiculously expensive. I have never seen so many Ferrarris, Rolls Royces, Aston Martins, and Ferraris all on one block as I did today in front of the Hotel de Paris.

  1. Those cars aren’t expensive! You should have been there earlier in the year, when Formula 1 cars race the streets. Now those are expensive cars 😀
    About the garden: Is it only as big as what we can see on the picture?
