This is a view I enjoy from my apartment window often in the morning. When you direct your eyes to the west, towards la Tete de Chien ( dog’s head), a promontory overlooking Monaco and Cap d’Ail, you can spot at times a curious coincidence: the moon setting just above the dome of l’Observatoire de la Cote d’Azur. This creates an impression that the Earth has suddenly acquired another satellite… The building with long terraces in front, is strategically placed in front of the St. Devote virage – the first curve on the Monaco racetrack, and during the Grand Prix overflows with partying spectators. The diminutive tiled roof with a spike you see just in front, became famous several years ago, as the most expensive roof in the world, but that was before Cohen brothers have sold their attic apartment a couple of years back, and now it will most likely be again overtaken by what seems destined to be the most expensive apartment in the world – the Penthouse on top of the Odeon Tower – just 50 meters from my office.
