Wheel chair packed…

 

it’s off to Nice.  Nice, in the south of France is a six hour drive from our house.  We like to go there because it is a big city, lots of non-Italian restaurants and lots of shopping.  And just because it is not Italy.  The city fathers also wisely developed a tram system that is clean, efficient, easy to use and wheel chair accessible. 

We had never been to Nice in December.  And it was all decorated for the holidays.

She’ll have to get in a car and drive somewhere if she really wants to see snow.

But this early evening picture from our hotel window almost made it look snowy. 

We had a wonderful corner room at the Best Western, Hotel New York, right on the tram line, with a small onsite parking lot where the car happily stayed.  Very good rate.  Excellent staff.  Elevator.  We will definitely stay there again. 

Look for some more posts about Nice.
