Strange Dichotomy

Nice, at the Côte d’Azur. A city that has remarkable features, within architecture, culture and of course lifestyle is being haunted by a huge tourism industry. Tourism, which is build mostly on fast and cheap revenue correlates with the ideal and idea of culture, which brings out a strange dichotomy, that you can observe all over the city. Wether this might be a pool, 3 meters away from the actual beach or a fake house front glued to the back of a building, once you accept these rather unaesthetical idiosyncrasies, you will go through the city with a constant little smirk.
