There are a few lessons I’ve come to learn from previous visits that I am remembering as I get back into the Cannes groove:
1 – Queuing is the activity you will most do in Cannes. Second only to running to get those queues.
2 – Cannes is glamorous for maybe 20% of the time, like when you – as a mere mortal – get to walk the Red Carpet instead of hover next to it. The rest of the time it can be quite the grind (yes, it is still hard work to be here in the French Riviera but I am not expecting you to feel sorry for me one bit!)
3. You will eat a French pastry every day you are here – even if you have given up these items in lieu of abs of steel. You will also drink more than you eat, as you dash from one event to another.
