Monte Carlo

Home to the Grand Prix, they actually run the race down all the main streets of the city. Monte Carlo is the prime city of the Principality of Monaco. Monaco is a country that is 1 1/2 square miles. (one half the size of New Yorks Central Park). It's thirty two thousand inhabitants either must have a six generation Montequesan bloodline or have passed a stringent financial statement review and background check. They have 10,000 security cameras and 500 police so there is virtually no crime. You're caught on camera before you can get away with anything. There is very expensive real estate. A small 900 square foot apartment can set you back one million dollars. It is home to the Casino Royale of James Bond fame. A very fun pass time is to sit out side the Casino Royale and watch the parade of Masaratis, Aston Martins, Ferraris, Bentleys and Rolls Royces parade by. There are some pretty nice yaghts as well
