Gridlock for Millionaires


Rush hour in Monaco, yesterday.


Time for a new Toffeewomble photo. This is a snap I took some months back, when I was spending a few days in Monte Carlo (yes, life is hard for the international thriller writer). It shows the most absurd traffic jam in history.

I don't know much about cars but I think that's a Ferrari, followed by a Ferrari, followed by a Maserati. Then a Lamborghini. Then a Ferrari. Or maybe the opposite.

Anyway, you get the picture. Not a Ford Focus in sight.

I loved Monaco, in all its cultureless vulgarity, and would one day quite happily retire there. Don't they say that the Riviera is where all good Englishmen go to die?

Salut.
