    The roads around the Palais de Festival were closed to traffic so us mere mortals could get close only to grab some generic touristy-style snaps of the red carpet. We could only begin to imagine how much better it would have looked as Ryan Gosling hovered over like some sort of deity.

    Day 3 The sun is out! We are well and truly soaking up the vitamin D and warming our feathers. We woke waking up feeling positive albeit with a muzzled head from the wine we’d been drinking the night before. The rain wasn’t beating down and flooding the campsite for a change.
