Monaco (13 May 2009)

Monaco is known as one of the most expensive and smallest country in the world. To me , Monaco always been famous for the street F1 racing and that is one of the reason of me going there.
Although the country is small, it was actually tiring to cover on foot plus the city itself has a few levels of street where one can take the elevator to go up from the ground level street to higher level of street which is kind of cool in one way!

We spend our day walking around the F1 circuit, which of course the streets and trying hard to remember which is the famous tunnel.

the church

We went to this Jardin or exotic garden where one can see lots of cactuses and exotic plants. Mind you that those cactuses range from mini to 14 storeys gigantic height. Then we heard towards the famous casinos including Monte Carlo casino.

After a long day walking around, we headed back to Nice as we did a day trip thingy from Nice instead of staying overnight in this expensive city. On the way back to the train station we were lost and even the map could not navigate us back to the station. Finally, we bump into a policewoman and she was nice enough to bring to the train station. Such a luck
