Word of advice - all indian restaurants (and many other places) are closed here on Monday.
Anyway, so this place is funny because even though I'm being served by a typical south indian lady, she refuses to speak to me in Hindi OR English!!
Then she served me my naan all by itself, like it was a dish! Man!
Food is decent though and I doubt very expensive (yes in my urgency to get indian food I forgot to check menu prices)

It would make sense though since Marseilles has always been a port city and got rich rather seriously because of the sea and trade.
Ofcourse - it also brought to them the plague epidemic and killed 50k people.

The way people display names of the restaurants, Nice seems to have a tradition of displaying the fact that the place has ice cream!
Everywhere you will find "glaces" written which means ice cream in french (I think!)
What you see here is the last course of my first seriously big meal.
It consisted of a huge cheese tomato sandwich, about 5 kilos of fries (they are standard!) And ofcourse, this rather nice ice cream.
Oh and for those wondering, Nice is pronounced "niece" and not "nice"

Despite the insane hustle bustle right below in the city, it is so quiet here I can actually hear myself breathe! (And no, that's not because of the climb!)
I'm staying here a while.

Easily the best thing to see in monaco.
And I don't even like fishes but the sheer size of the aquariums will hold you spell bound.
Its like you can see sea life from the comfort of your sofa!
Or - you could say this is Big Boss for the fishes :)
