VISIT TO ST. TROPEZ
Yesterday evening Claudie's friends came over for supper, we had pasta, salad, cheese and ice cream. We had a lot of fun and discussed and laughed until midnight !
Today we went to St. Tropez which is known for its famous and extremely wealthy summertime guests. It has been dubbed the 'playground to jetsetters, fashion models, and millionaires', and it is most-enduringly known as the place which the iconic Brigitte Bardot had discovered as her favorite holiday place and has her villa "La Madrague" still there. Therefore it became an internationally-known seaside resort. It is a resort for the European and American jet set and since shortly also for the Russian millionairs. We saw huge luxury yachts, Ferraris and Lotus cars for which you have to spent around 50.000 $ ! Unfortunately the owners are not so pretty like the yachts and cars and mostly old and rather faded.
After a long walk through the city we had a nice picnic on the place "les Lyces" in the middle of St. Tropez. Claudies sister with husband and daughter and the two grandchildren were with us.
This was my last day, when you read this I am on my way back home to Brussels.
