We made it to Nice! The flight on Jet2 from London to Nice was okay but from the looks of the old 737-300 we were trapped in, in need a bit of maintenance, I probably would not fly that particular carrier again. British used this carrier to help provide service during the flight attendant strike. The strike continues but the union is in a weak position and may not continue the strike after this weekend. For exercise, I carried the two 50 lb bags with our luggage up five flights (84 steps)to the apartment overlooking old town Nice. We are very close to the beach and just a couple of blocks from the market, wonderful small shops and restaurants are everywhere. Tonight a bottle of local wine, a baguette from the local patisserie, some olives and cheese for dinner. Tomorrow our cooking class with Rosa. (Barb says the bags were only 46 lbs, but with my 15 lb backpack, that is over 100 lbs up the aforementioned steps).
