Cannes and its prestigious Cinema Festival, the 12 days in May when the town turned into a mini-Hollywood with movie stars, producers, deal makers, the wannabes and those who just wanted to be seen. I never paid much attention to the festivals so I don't have anything to write about the event or the building, Palais des Festivals, which was more a large concrete bunker than the glamorous activities inside. Just like a typical tourist, I took the photo to prove that I was there! In future entry, I will post photos of hand prints on the ground in the allee des Stars left by famous movie stars.
When I first saw the painting without seeing the words "Gare des Autobus", I thought the building (photo above) was a theatre or an art school. Then we saw passengers walking out, carrying luggages instead of art porfolios, we went inside to find out that it was a bus station with an interesting exterior. We finally saw Gare des Autobus on the building after we crossed the street and looked back at the painting. I took the photo below because I like the balconies and all the full length windows. It must be nice to live or stay at this hotel/apartment building and to enjoy the spectacular view of the seafront.
