Adam and Eve with a cast iron core (part 2)

Nice lawns and flowerbeds are broken on the terrace … And here they are! The monument to our ancestors is the famous Eve and Adam. Guys, hello from Eva.Ru !!! A member of Adam is polished – everyone strives to touch his hands. We did not, as it was inconvenient in broad daylight. Adam is so impressive. Eve, however, too. At Eve’s feet, a small cannonball is an apple.

We are looking for the entrance to the Monte Carlo casino. For reference – Monte Carlo, this is the quarter of Monaco. Fences, fences … damn it! How do we get inside? We wander in the end at the Grand Hotel casino. An impressive but polite doorman. Explains what needs to be undressed in the wardrobe. The camera is niht. We feed ten euros to a one-armed bandit. We wandered around the hall … going out somewhere, another doorman looks very disapprovingly, but is silent. It turns out that this is a passage into the Grand Hotel. Some boutiques, a sign “no tenants and no staff go”, and a wonderful view of the sea. We are standing, admiring. Near the banquet hall and elevators, it is important that the guests ply. They ply – they’re not just walking, but moving their bodies with indescribable grace. That’s who Adam and Eve are stuck with on the roof. With these pompous, extremely worthy sons and daughters of the human race. I used to think that people from glossy magazines (Cosmopolitan, etc.) are made on a computer in Photoshop. He was greatly mistaken; they are being made in Monaco.

We get out to Casino Square, here it is, it turns out, the main entrance – and we were looking on the other side, on the terrace (where Eve and Adam). In the casino, tourists are pulled by a string. No rich men play there at all. The casino is a place of collecting money from suckers tourists. We wander the streets. It is strange that there are no ordinary shops at all. Only souvenir shops (expensive model cars of Formula 1 cars made of cheap plastic) and expensive boutiques. And where do millionaires buy food?

Returning to the station, we got lost. We ask the way from the oncoming woman. We explain it with difficulty, since the lovely lady speaks Spanish. However, the map of the area is an international phenomenon. We go down to the train station with a cunning goat path. Let’s go to Monton, it’s about 7-10 minutes by train. On the platform there is a crowd of people, it dawns and people go home. After all, only super-wealthy individuals live in Monaco. Several thousand citizens of principle and a couple of tens of thousands of “foreigners”. Attendants, employees of numerous offshore companies live outside the city. However, this is normal – to Nice 20 minutes by train.
