We are sailing in the Mediterranean on the beautiful Crystal Serenity. Our cruise began in Monte Carlo and will conclude in Barcelona.
What can I tell you about Monte Carlo! Not only is it beautiful but it is an incredibly wealthy place. I have never seen so many Rolls Royces, Bentleys and Ferarris in a city square. Of course, they are all parked outside the stunning Monte Carlo Casino. A contributing factor to the oppulence was that this past weekend was the annual Monte Carlo Yacht Show. There were more huge yachts than there were expensive cars! At the conclusion of the yacht show, all the vessels sounded their horns. While you would think that would be incredibly annoying, it was actually quite symphonic as it resounded through the bay. I have attached a video of this which really doesn't capture the true beauty of the variety of ships' horns.
