Isn't this grate lovely. The gutter runs right in front of someone's door and they had this gorgeous grate over it so they can walk in without falling in a wet hole.
Incase anyone is tempted to comment on my tanned feet (they are usually a bluey colour) let me tell you it is all fake. I was walking around thinking "ooh I'm such a nice healthy colour" but the locals in Nice and Cannes were looking at me like "Quelle horreur, I have never seen such a pale creature!". [pardon French spelling, not sure if it's correct and too tired to check]
