Cannes, late January, 2012

This town has some new faces and changes. JW Marriott replaced Stephanie (ex-Hilton). Some old restaurants closed down and hip ones came in. Good to see my old friend shop (photo 4) which sells lots of nice herbs and preserve....etc. My friends and family, remember those herb I brought to you. It's from this shop. Further on, a friendly ad for Tuk Tuk service in Cannes is really refreshing to me in a rainy cold weather here. The last few photos show the power of X100. Those were taken at wide open F2 at ISO3,200.

Apartment in Cannes, Southern France

On some of the trips in Cannes, I would feel like staying in an apartment (not a full serviced with daily cleaning and a restaurant). So you would find yourself living more local. This time I chose this apartment in the port area, a bit away from the busy crowded area. It's very spacious at around 800 square feet with a big balcony and a full kitchen that I thought about getting some freshly made ravioli and a roasted chicken for a nice lunch in the balcony. Unfortunately the weather has been very rainy for the past 2 days.

瞬間看地球, 康城, 法國南部 10:05pm - Around the Earth at a glance, Cannes, Southern France

This scene is very familiar for those who watch the HK TV world clock report, especially in the morning news time before going to work (e.g. HK time 6-8am is Cannes 11pm to 1am. Thinking if my family may have watched me walking along this harbour in the morning time of HK. A big hello from Cannes! This time I am staying in a serviced apartment just at the far left of this photo. I need to walk across this area in these few days.

Climbing up, inside Sagrada Familia, Barcelona, Spain - part 2

Suggest buying a ticket with the lift visit to get up at around 15-20 floors high inside the tower, The ticket itself is about Euros 10 and 6 for the lift. As you walk down inside the tower, you would feel how narrow staircases (photo 4). Then after you get on the ground level, you will get a swirling feeling for sure. Applaud for the workers who made it.
