Reflecting on the last few days, one of the things I realized is that Cannes has been a great way to unwind. The sun is always shining, the weather is fabulous, the scenery is spectacular, the faces around you are happy, everyone is relaxed and there’s not a cell phone in sight. And the hours spent in the Palais absorbing everything going on in the industry globally, listening to eminent speakers, hearing great stories really broaden ones horizons.
I decided to take some time off today and went to the beach. Lots of single people, groups of friends and young families.
Also checked out Rue the Antibes, lined with all kinds of shops – small ones as well as the usual suspects, selling everything from clothes to bags to shoes to accessories to groceries. Decided to window shop as I couldn’t justify buying one more article post my US holiday a couple of weeks ago. But it did take a lot of restraint!
Dinner will be at Le Suquet, a little winding cobbled street that is on a slope with restaurants on either side. Each menu is unique with all kinds of specialties. Today is the longest day of the year and from what I hear everyone’s going to be outside making the most of it. Have a booking at L’Echiquet recommended by a local friend. More tomorrow.
