Apartment Life in Cannes, France

6 06 2015

I am back in the south of France on my annual visit to Cannes for a convention but for the first time in June.  Starting this year, the organizers have decided to dramatically change its dates to June from January/February after more than, I believe, 45 years.

A big change for me also this year is that I am staying in an apartment without a roommate for the first time in close to 10 years.  My best friend who works in the same industry always used to come to the convention as part of her job but since she’s been transferred to another group company of hers, the convention has become irrelevant to her work.

As a result, I am in a one-bedroom apartment this year, housed in a Bourgeois building w/o an elevator.  Good thing I only have one flight of stairs to reach my apartment.

My street, rue Marceau, with the apartment on left.  Across the street from me is my favorite wine shop in Cannes.

Back in apartment opened the bottle of rose that was recommended by the lady owner of the wine shop across the street from here.  I always like to get "Ott" but she said she preferred this so went with her choice.  Not bad but I might prefer Ott.
