We spent a night in Monaco - which happen to be the opening night of the international fireworks competition finals!  We witnessed the most spectacular show ever over the harbor.  We donated $50 to the Monaco Casino and partook in the tourist gawking of cars parked throughout the area.  We were honored to see that the Range Rover evoque was allowed to park with the exotics!  We did not purchase one of the 500 s.f. studio apartments overlooking the harbor for $1,5 m.  We then headed west to Provence, stopping to visit the fields of Lavender on our way to our next stop at Mont Fort - a boutique hotel in the hills.
