O belu Munegu (1)
Today is the Fete Nationale and we're enjoying a day away from the office. Hope you are too! In celebration of the special holiday it's free to travel on all Monaco buses, including the bateaux bus. Cafe de Paris is also marking the occasion with a menu that includes Monegasque dishes, available throughout the weekend.
Following the terrible events in Paris last weekend, the Principality is in a heightened state of security and several events have been canceled. Some are going ahead, but are subject to changes, such as next Thursday's Europa League match between Monaco and Anderlecht, which is now off limits to the Belgian team's fans.
No Finish Line course is still open throughout the weekend, but many of the supplementary entertainments are not taking place.
National Day events have also been affected. Sadly, last night's fireworks were canceled, and the funfair in Port Hercule has been closing at 9pm every evening. Today is your last chance to win a cuddly toy and scare yourself witless on one of the rides.
What's in the diary ....
Thursday: Hunger Games.
Friday: Russian kids dancing.
Saturday: Monaco v Nantes.
Coming up next week, first jazz festival gig, chocolate workshop and interiors for wellbeing.
