I arrived in Nice just as the sun was touching the Mediterranean horizon. It was one hell of a sight. It had all the beauty of an unusually dramatic sunset multiplied by the grandiose landscape glowing gold in the low light. I couldn’t bring myself to take a picture. I sat back, listened to smooth, rhythmic churning of the sea and admired the scenery.

I probably should have used the last bit of sunlight to locate my hostel. I bet i could have found it in less than two hours, but I found a tree full of oranges and a bakery with fresh baguettes.
