Monte Carlo

While we were in Southern France, we got to drive over to Monte Carlo, Monaco. Monaco is a separate country from France, but it is very small. The prince of Monaco, Prince Albert, works alongside the President of France, Nicolas Sarkozy when making laws for Monaco. Monte Carlo is the most famous town in Monaco because of its Formula One Grand Prix car race that is held there every year and because of its casino that is featured in James Bond movies. The famous explorer Jacques Cousteau's museum and aquarium is also in Monte Carlo and it is a big building built into the side of the mountain. Shawn was mostly excited to be able to go to Monte Carlo though to see all of the fast cars and boats!
