Pic 5.12.2008

Yesterday Prince Albert had been among the first visitors
of the Chrismas village (market) in Monaco. The market is
open daily from 11 am - 10 pm till January 4, 2009 ( quite
extraordinary in my eyes, that it won't close right after
Christmas ).

Thanx iceflower for pics. It must be really warm in Monaco, because kids are only wearing national outfits with short sleeves. But on the other hand PA and his people are in winter coats.

it appears that it's cold and perhaps, it is. But remember, kids have lose clothing which can hide layers and with all that energy being spent dancing most probably weren't even affected, could it be???? The article was delightful. It was surprising to see it was PA first visit to this delightful festivity??? One of the fav of Monaco's festivities we enjoy seeing is where for charity they have all the christmas trees decorated up in one room and then they are sold. Truly one of our favorites. Let's hope they have lots of pics, this year!

It's cold only if you consider 60 degrees (F) - 16 degrees (C) - cold.

Here are several pics from the last days.

1. Some more pics from the opening of the Christmas village on December 5:

** Pic 1 ** Pic 2 ** Pic 3 ** Pic 4 **

2. Some pics from the award gala evening of "Peace and Sport" in Monaco,
as there were three conference days of that organisation from December 3-5,
I guess the award gala took place on Friday, December 5, but I'm not sure.

3. Some pics of Prince Albert at the opening of an exhibition of
a numismatic collection at the museum for coins and stamps in
Monaco this weekend.

Thanks Iceflower,

Nice holiday pictures -- the last ones with the stamps are really nice of Albert. That's a nice picture of him on the stamp too. I like the event with all the different little trees. I hope they get some nice photos.

I see nothing extraordinary with it. You should not forget that the South of France and Monaco are filled with a lot of Russian who are Orthodox and met their Christmas on January 7th.

Here you go Aquamarine, you must be right, there are a lot of Russians in MC. I read somewhere that some time ago local shops were looking for Russian speaking sales people because a lot of customers from Russia.

I doubt this has something to do with the Orthodox festivity. Also in Italy all the Christmas markets are traditionally open also after Christmas. Most of them are open till January 6th, that is the last Catholic festivity day, Epiphany.

perhaaaps, it's been a surprise to PA that the plans had to be ditched if he ditched them at the last minute if he's been mulling over the concerns both environmentally and financially.

It must be difficult decision for P.Albert to put extension project on hold. It seemed such advantage for Monaco. I think he means they will go back to this project when global economy is better.
BTW PA looks really nice and quite young in recent pics.
