It's 7pm, I'm sitting near the beach in a bar called Akathor, drinking happy hour beer (EUR 3.70 for half a litre, ain't bad considering the normal prices) and huh, beer is good, again.

I did go to the beach as intended, the whole 45 minutes, just can't stay doing nothing for so long time at once. Even moving around without any purpose is better for me, so ... usually I do. Went shopping, just to get some cheap clean clothes. I did.

Now I'm in the happy hour bar, Akathor, been here couple of times before, it's a great place, for anyone who comes to Nice, I definitely suggest it. Have also insured a hotel for me for the next two nights. Hotel Darcy near the railway station, on the street Rue d'Alglaiterr or smth similar. That's also on the steet where I found a viable wireless and near the other wifi spot. The hotel itself is...well, shit. At least my room. But at least they did have some free rooms, the cost was 42.50 which is 20 euros less than I paid last night. Not sure yet if it's worth it thought, theoretically, for 50 euros you could get a pretty nice hotel. But the timing ain't good, it's the high time of the high season, so not a good time to look for a cheap nice hotel.

So today I'l drink the cheapest expensive beer I have found in Nice, and currently listening to live accoustic music by a Scottish guy in Akathor. He sounds good actually, especially if you compare it to "normal" pub bands which are often awful. He's good.

After that...well, chances are there will be no "after that" as somehow the days are tiring. Tomorrow I'll probably see the marina again. I have bought a ticket back to Estonia for next Sunday, so in a week. Hopefully I won't get broke before that. Chances are - I will.
