Location: Nice, France
Today has been a pretty good day... i found a computer that has a normal keyboard. Last night we got to the hotel we were supposed to stay at, but apparently they cancelled our reservations. we went for supper while our tour guide, melanie, rebooked at a different hotel. i think we got a pretty good deal because we got a nicer hotel, but it was geared towards more mature groups so we had to be super quiet. We also got to sleep in.. :D
Our tour started at a perfume factory in Eze (said like Pez minus the P). I learnt that it takes 1000 kilograms of flowers to make a couple litres of perfume.
Then we went to monaco and saw the palace and changing of the guard.\
We stopped at a chocolate/crystallized fruit factory just now. We are at the hotel we were supposed to stay at and are going to the beach soon. I love this French Riviera, its so nice and hilly.
See you on Tuesday (for some)

Guten tag! Bon Giorno! Bonjour! :)
Hey everyone. I'm in Nice right now and tomorrow is our last day.. So iùll be ho,e soon: Sorry these keyboqrds qre stupid so Iù, too lqwy to type correctly: Iùll just briefly summarize whqt iùve done:
Switzerlqnd was qwesome and so beautiful: We went up to to Mount Pilatus, and had a traditional folklore night: it was aweso,e.
Venice was really neat: I went to San Marco Basilica and Doge's Palace. we qlso went for q trqditionql gondolq ride zhich was nice.
On our way to Rome we stopped in Verona where we saw Julliet's balcony and i rubbed her breast for good luck; In Rome we saw so ,uch: I really liked the sight seeing but hated the dirtyness (air and litter). We went to the Vaticqn qnd sqw the Sistine Chapel and St Peters Bqsilicq. We saw the Colloseum, the Roman Forum, Spanish Steps, and Trevi Fountain. :) Probably my favorite history-wise.
We spent a day in Florence which was pretty nice. it had a lot of artsy stuff, and i got to see the statue of Dqvid. I also ate alot of GELato... Mmmmm:) That night we got to go to a discoteque which was a blast!!! :)
Today we came to Nice. On the way we stopped in pisa and saw the Leaning Tower and the Cathedral..
I forgot to mention that the temperatures have been awesome, and we went to q cera,ic factory and a leather one. I only bought so,e garlic olive oil from the former.. Should be good :)
Tomorro is the last day and it should be relaxing.. We are going to a perfu,e factory, Monaco, a chocolate factory, and about five hours of free ti,e which i want to spend at the beach. :) Then its home time, and i'm not ready yet :(
Lookin forward to seeing everyone again though :) I tried to add photos but the computer didn't agree with me...
Ciao, Arrividerci, au revoir!!
