Uncategorized Menton I July 15, 2014 admin Leave a comment We departed London via Gatwick and arrived in Nice at 4:30pm. It’s an easy drive to Menton, about 20 minutes. We went to M. Rizo’s apartment where he lives with his girlfriend Arlette, his wife died years ago, and neither speaks English. I was really pleased with my French! We spoke French the entire time and while I’m still not that good, I was able to understand them and be understood. What a great feeling! Their daughter Marlene, a good friend of Mary Anne’s, arrived later and we’ll spend the day with her tomorrow. Alex took the photo above and this is the view from M. Rizo’s balcony. Another photo from M. Rizo’s balcony, the apartment overlooks the Mediterranean Sea. Just gorgeous.
