Houston to Vence, France: Day 1

Old town of Vence from our balcony with Med behind it

MA and I left IAH Sunday evening around 6pm on Continental and arrived in Frankfurt around 1pm Monday.  The flight over was uneventful.  The food was the best ever on an airplane.  I had some kind of Southwester chicken that was not bad and real Blue Bell Homemade vanilla ice cream for dessert.  I could
not sleep so I practically read a Tom Clancy novel over the Atlantic.  Our transfer from United (Continental) to Lufthansa went real smooth.  Last year was chaotic and rushed.  We were directed out of the terminal and had to go back through security.  This time we walked off our plane, down a terminal and we were right at the gate for the flight to Nice.  By the way, we've noticed the European flight attendants seemed to be more friendly that their USA counter-parts.

We arrived in Nice at 2pm local time.  Our three bags arrived with us.  We were met by Randy and Nola.  They were so glad to see us.  I don't think MA and Nola stopped talking the rest of the day.  We got to our rented condo owned by a friend of Nola's.  Her name is Karen.  This is a really nice condo with a gorgeous view of Vence and the surrounding homes.  We finally figured out how to get on line so the blog will be written during our stay here.  We walked into Vence late in the day and went shopping for food the next couple of days.

One of the hotels in Vence likes to put ceramic cats in their windows

I had been up over 30 hours but still managed to take a few photos on our walk into the heart of Vence.  I'll have more to share in the coming days.  Later, Wayne

Like last year, the doors are still a great photo.
