    About Time for a Chinese

A Walk in the French Riviera: Je Suis une Star de Cinéma [On The Road: Cannes]

I can't go to a bad movie by myself. Who am I going to make sarcastic remarks to? Strangers?
Jerry Seinfeld (Seinfeld episode “The Chinese Restaurant”)

Next stop was obviously Cannes. The city is the perfect place to go as a paparazzi looking for movie stars. Lovely city, fluorescent lights, hotels, restaurants, casinos, dramatic views when you get from the west following the coast. Overall plenty to do, including wandering in La Croisette to spot the twin cupolas of the Carlton hotel, take a guided tour in the ugly but huge palais des festivals, climb the winding pedestrian roads in the old district to get to Le Suquet, pay for a swim in any of the private beaches along Le Croisette, or hunt for the murals that are around the town.

For diner we went to Seasens, a restaurant located in the 5th floor of the Five Seas hotel, too many fives isn’t it. Lovely hotel the view was ok, not so impacting as the hotel was hiding in a back alley. The restaurant was fully book but we got a table by the pool for finger food and cocktails. Lovely cocktails and nice food. Our highlight was the foie gras. Expect to spend €58pp.
