Côte d'Azur day 7-8

Day 7: Our visit to Cannes mainly existed of walking the impressive boulevard La Croisette and following in the foosteps of the most famous French and international actors and actresses.

Me and my sister at the Grand Auditorium, pretending to be Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson. :)

Me and the handprint of Tim Robbins.
On the boulevard La Croisette: the Carlton hotel.

Back at the villa after some shopping. I'm doing it French style with lots of pain français.
In the evening we went to Port Fréjus, which was very photogenic at that time of day.

Day 8: On day 8 we headed to Grasse. It wasn't a very impressive city (quite a big part of it seemed to be somewhat degraded), but we did enjoy our visit to the 'Parfumerie Fragonard', a factory that produces the perfumes Grasse is so well-known for.

In the Fragonard factory.
Here we had to find out the differences between male and female perfumes.
The shop at the end of the guided tour.
On our way back to the villa, we stopped in a couple of small towns.
The rather impressive cactus in our garden.
To be continued.
