A day with the filthy rich and my 20 Euro

Before hitting Switzerland, i travelled to Nice & spent a day in Monaco. I have never seen so many Ferrari's, BMW's, Lamborghini's, Corvette's etc. casually driving around and parked outside the Monaco Casino. I found out to live in Monaco, your annual income must be around 1-2 million bucks and you have to be invited to live there. Had dinner at the docks with friends Bronwyn and Lauren overlooking the million dollar boats and awesome Palace views before spending the evening at the Casino. We drank dry Martini's while i gambled my petty 20 Euro at Roulette with other tuxedo gentlemen gambling their 2,000 Euro pocket change. The Casino was pretty cool. It had velvet wallpaper, artistic painted high ceilings and a real posh atmosphere. I broke even by the end of the night.
