St Paul de Vence

Continuing the scooter tour of the French Riviera: St Paul de Vence.

It is one of the oldest towns in the region. Today it is full of art galleries selling some of the most hideous pieces of art imaginable at astronomical prices, quite possibly to appeal to the Russian oligarch set. Some of the artwork even seemed quite self-aware, such as the cowering figure for the aforementioned Russian oligarch to stand over, and the duffel bag made from resin filled with bundles of fake 500 Euro notes: my money laundering lets me buy artwork of money laundering! How meta.

Riviera: Antibes

Antibes. Once home to people like Pablo Picasso. Now home to superyachts worth up to half a billion dollars.
