Day 13 - Sunday, May 18 Cannes!! - 61st Film Festival!!

It's a Sunday, and usually nothing's open on Sundays in France... but thanks to the film festival, there were tourists everywhere and almost all the shops were open.. We took a taxi to the city, which cost us 40 Euros coz our hotel was so damn far from the train station/beach/film festival/city ... 
Then we went to a supermarket and bought stuff for our picnic on the beach tonight!!! I was really excited.. we got 3 long baguettes, a bottle of white wine, goat cheese and nutella!!! 
We went to get the tickets to watch one of the movie screening at 2 p.m. for 7 Euros. It was kind of a weird movie I gotta say.. but good nonetheless...
We got out of the cinema at 3.30 p.m. and decided that Harrison Ford was worth waiting for, for 4 hours... So we waited, and waited, got squished, and waited, burnt under the sun, and waited, got wet, under the rain, and waited.
Finally, at 7, he appeared with Calista Flockhart, Cate Blanchette, Shia la Bouf, and Salma Hayek! Oh I got Natalie Portman on film too! Pretty sweet!!
Right after that, we left the crowd.. it was too much ... seriously!! We went to the beach and had a lil picnic and waited for out Looney Tunes screening!! 
I was really cold.. but we stayed and watched it till 10nish I think.. oh before the screening, JuliJul (don't really know how to spell French names) - a band... performed.. I'd def check them out on their myspace page. They were good.. and the lead singer was hot!
We went back to the hotel - taxi cost us 47 Euros!!! yikes!! And had our bottle of wine and played Rummy!!

2 nights at hotel and a dinner - 100 Euros
