Le Joli Petit Train.



I'm so pleased to be back having been without an Internet connection for what seems like an eternity. I'll be round to see what you've all been up to later but for now here's today's offering...

Still in Grasse and am seriously considering changing the name of this blog...
The Cote d'Azur equivalent of the Segway. Every city here has these wonderful yellow trains that take you in all sorts of nooks and crannies that otherwise you might not find; just be careful you don't get stuck behind one in traffic.
The scariest trip I've ever been on was in one of these in Marseilles when we took one to Notre Dame de la Garde up a very steep hill, pure Thunder Mountain!
Ignore the sign on the top; they are certainly not free (that's an advertisement for Fragonard, the perfumery)

Fragonard smells better than these little trains...

Oh, and I got so excited seeing that gratuit sign ;-)

I would love to be in Grasse and ride that yellow train right now!

I want to be there too, Isabella! The yellow color and the open air makes it look so much fun!
