Day 8 got off to a hilarious start. Our guide had stayed out all night and had collapsed in bed 45 minutes before the bus was supposed to leave. He managed to drag himself out to the bus a little late and fall asleep again but it was funny to see. After the drive we were checking in and a torrential rain started. Our hotel was right in the middle of old Nice which was really good. But our dinner reservation had been cancelled. So Jason went out into the rain and got us into a new restaurant. It was a soggy five minute walk to the place but worth it once we got there. The whole time Jason had been telling us about a place called Waynes that has live music, so I was pretty excited about that. When we got to Waynes it was packed.

It was really fun. But we were all pretty tired so I headed back with Aneetha and Jess after a bit.

Day 9 was another sleep in day. Not because of booze this time though. It was pouring rain and we were in the middle of a thunderstorm. So me, Katherine and Kylie, the girls from New Zealand, went to do our laundry. It actually took most of the day to dry our clothes for some reason. But we were going into Monaco for dinner and check out the casino that night. The drive into Monaco was pretty cool and then we walked around from the Oceanographic museum and aquarium to the castle to our restaurant. We enjoyed a nice dinner and then went to the casino. A few of us made some money and a few lost some, Riley and Nathan did the best of anyone. But we went back into Nice and a few people went to casino's there but for the most part we all just went to bed.
