“Boeuf” in Cannes


The first port of call on my 12 night Royal Caribbean Mediterranean cruise was Cannes, France.  I found it to be very pleasant and nice…almost too perfect!  I’m not complaining…it’s just that I like the “unusual” in my travels.  Perhaps not exciting enough…no sense of adventure or mystery.  Anyway, after walking for hours…there were only so many shops we could look in…

  A little cappuccino break…

We stopped at a restaurant and the waitresses couldn’t speak much English.  One of the “specials of the day” was something with boeuf  in it.  The waitress kept enunciating it…boof…and finally I said, “What animal sound does it make?  Moo…Moo?”  She agreed that it made the sound, “Moo…Moo!”  When I lived in Germany for a few years in my early 20’s, learning to communicate was essential.

French grafitti…they would have to “one up” everyone else!

  You haven’t experienced France unless you’ve sampled some cheese…

Look at the size of that Octopus…

Our next destination is one of my favorites…Cinque Terre, Italy! (I hope the clean-up efforts are going well!)

  1. Great quick picture-caption blog post. I love the grafitti of windows. When one mentions Cannes, you immediately think films and the awards. I guess so much more than just that. Thanks for the share.

  2. When I saw “Boeuf” and “Cannes” in your title I thought we were going to a nude beach with you. Mmmm, I sure “missed the boat” on that one. And when you took the picture of the cheese did it say “Fromage”? OK, I’ll stop with the bad puns.

  3. Look at all those greens mixed with a small meat portion and slivers of cheese and a salad. I’d say that’s how they stay slim, no quarter pounders with fries, or fried chicken tenders, and gallon sodas, ha ha.

  4. Nice photos. Cinque Terre is still in terrible shape, I’m sad to say. You can usually find out information on the BBC site. I feel so sorry for the people there.

  5. I was in Cannes in 1970 and what I remember was paying about $4 for a bottle of water. I keep staring at the young mom. Where is the unwashed hair, the tee shirt with spit up all over it, the frazzled look on her face? Oh, that was me.
