Historic Hermitage Hotel, Monte Carlo

Blogdosts, remember.... you did say  "Öui"' when I asked!
So... here are a few early, first day/night images shot by moi on my faithful Leica ( Thank you, Gitaaaah - it remains one of my most cherished birthday gifts!).
 From the top: Roses (white - in case you thought they were red, ha ha ha), Champagne (Pommery) in the chiller, chocolates ( Hediard - the best, after the Japanese brand Royce). Now - that's what one calls a royal welcome! Nobody does it better than the Hermitage.
And the ceiling view of the chandelier is of our lovely, blue themed suite.
That's the magnifique Belle Epoque breakfast room which opens out to a terrace. Followed by a lobby view. And an incredible early evening vista of the yachts- jammed harbour as seen from our balcony. F Finally, the farewell bow and last curtain call at the Opera "Ámica'' ( written in 1905, and just revived).
There's more where those came from. All you have to do is give me a thumbs up!
                                                                     *************
Happy Holi. May the good times roll. And may Holika do her job tonight by destroying evil forces, as the Holi fires burn across India and hungry flames lick the sky.

Happy Holi to the writer of my childhood favorite show. lol You know which character I find the most amazing the lady who played "Deveka." She was always drunk & angry, fighting with her live-in boyfriend. I used to always wonder why is she so crappy and mean all the time; but guess what??? Innocent times!!!! Now I get it. HAHAHA CRAZY! I would loved to meet her someday and take epic fan pix! HAHAHA Have a safe Holi!!!

Hi, Happy Holi to you and your family. It is interesting to see how traditions vary across India, in Punjab normally people don't light a bonfire on Holi, rather it is Lohri that is celebrated around a bonfire.
Wow! what a splendid view from your balcony. Have always enjoyed watching the Monaco Grand Prix because of the narrow twisty hill roads, scenic views of the Monaco waterfront. It seemed like a dream destination. Yes would love to see more pictures.
