Scruples

We saw an orange tree in the pedestrian street two days ago. Here's another. This time in front of Scruples, the English book shop in Monte Carlo. Other towns along the French Riviera have English bookshops - Antibes, Cannes, Nice, Valbonne. Yet others have an English library, often part of the Anglican church. Indeed there is one of these in Monaco, attached to St. Paul's Anglican church and another in Menton, attached to St. John's English church.

Old bookstores like this one is something I miss a lot here...
There is a special feeling when you enter a place like that...
All those books waiting in silence for you to open them...
Closing my eyes I imagine the orange tree's perfume...

What a great idea, read a book whilst topping up your vitamin C

If those orange trees were in Montego Bay, I'm sad to say there would be no oranges on the trees. They would all be stolen. Indeed, they might steal the very trees!
