No problem getting to the Valbonne area, the bus was quicker than the timetable led me to expect, and I almost missed my stop. My boss had said “take a taxi”, but my Scots heritage comes to the fore at times like these. If you count the flight and hotels, I may spend less than half what my colleagues would spend under the same circumstances.
On my two previous (short) trips to France, I didn’t watch much television, I don’t think I’ll be watching too much this time either. They dub everything into French, and I mean everything. After a little flipping, I’ve seen dubbed bits of The Simpsons, Saved By The Bell, Fresh Prince, and The Bette Midler Show. The hotel claims to have CNN, but it’s showing Bloomberg instead. In German. At least they have BBC World, which makes up for it somewhat.
