Jilly


I had contacted Jilly (Monte Carlo Daily Photo) for some information about the Princedom, where to park my car during a one-day trip I had decided to make last saturday with my son and daugther-in-law. Not only did she immediately give me all the necessary information, she also met with us in front of Hotel de Paris and drove and led us around, to show us the main sight-seeing points. A sparkling and generous person with a lot of cultural interests and a great passion for photography and dogs. Thank you, Jilly, also on behalf of Hendrick and Simona! We will not forget this.

Nice photo of a nice day. Although it is out of the frame of the photo, I suspect that Jilly has accessorized her outfit with a camera around her neck.

My goodness, Diederick, a post with my name of it! Well, let me say, it was absolutely MY pleasure to meet you and your wonderful son and daughter-in-law, Hendrick and Simona.

You were the most fabulous people to show around, so interested and sensitive to it all. Of course I know you know Monaco from the past, Diederich, so suspect you were indulging me somewhat!

So good - truly good - that we've met and are now Blogger friends. And thanks for the posting and photograph - a lovely memory of a super day.

We visited Monte Carlo and Monaco in 2005, it was our first honeymoon, soooo romantic place! :-)
Have a nice time!
