I have drawn this puzzle to celebrate, my best friend, John's birthday on 4 April, 2020.

Since today is John's birthday, let us all concentrate on happy and positive things and events only. Let us just leave the real world outside and enjoy this virtual party.

Come friends, let us gather round and toast to the birthday boy.

John, here is a toast for you. I wish you good health, happiness and a fulfilled life.
Cheers, everyone. A votre santé.

Last night, all of you have arrived safely at a 5 star hotel in Nice, France.

When you entered your hotel room, you would have found a lovely floral display at the dressing table.

On the coffee table, are gifts of a pair of good, comfortable walking shoes contained in a lovely box. Next to it is a hat, sunglasses and a tote bag.

A gorgeous box of Valrhona French premium chocolate awaits you at the bedside table.

You had a lovely dinner and a refreshing night sleep.

As this is a Virtual Birthday Party, everywhere that we go are virus free and totally safe. Everyone is healthy, fit and strong, positive and happy. No social distancing is required.

It is now 5.50am, Saturday, 4 April 2020 and we are all in Nice, France.

Let us enjoy one of Nice's nicest pleasures -the most famous market area : Cours Selaya which is located between Place Massena and Vieux Nice (Old Town).

We shall wander around the Marche aux Fleurs Cours Saleya which opens at 6am to avoid the crowds so that we can easily wander around this place.

Let us savour the lovely sight of all the gorgeous blooms and delight our sense of smell with the aromas of flowers and spices.

We can buy flowers, spices, souvenirs, etc from vendors, shops, boutiques. No worries, the Virtual Organiser for John's Virtual Birthday Party said that he will pick up all the tabs.

He will also pay for our breakfast bills at one of the cafes at the Cours Saleya. This cafe has a good choice of breakfast items, excellent service and good ambiance. Just select whatever you like from the menu.

After breakfast, we will continue to browse the flowers, fruits, vegetables and local products from inland Nice at this open air market. The colours and scents will delight our eyes and nose. We will feel the joy of life with the lively ambience.

Standing under the shade of pretty striped awnings of the stores will provide some relief from the sun while we take a closer look at what the vendors have to offer or when selecting the items that we would like to purchase.

The sight of all the floral displays and the fragrances of all the flowers are just heavenly. We can also have a chat with the florists and hoticulturists and seek their advice on how to take care of flowers. John and I love flowers :-) We hope that you all like flowers, too :-)

As we walk through this charming market and soak in the warm and friendly atmosphere, we will notice that the vegetables are fresh, vibrantly coloured and are nicely displayed.

The scent of the herbs and spices are just wonderful.

We will come across vendors selling souvenirs - lovely lavender products. soaps and fragrances, wood craft items and homemade olive oils, etc.

As we continue to walk through this lovely market with its great atmosphere and colours, we will come across some great local food.

Let us try some Socca which is a traditional dish from Nice, from a street side store. We will see it being prepared on a fiery grill. This flatbread is then coarsely chopped and served in a cone with a sprinkling of salt and pepper. Enjoy.

We can also try the local onion tart and pan bagna.

Now, my dear friends, let us just enjoy our stroll as we browse at this famous lovely open-air market.

I will be back later (in real time about 12 hours later ). I will then continue with the itinerary for the afternoon (virtual time). You will see this itinerary beginning the salution "Dear Friends and Jigidiers"

So, see you all, later.

This puzzle is posted in 4 sizes - 12, 99, 238 and 320 pieces.

I hope that all of you will have a fun time piecing this puzzle together.

Cheerio and Birthday Smiles,
Jason :-)

Welcome my friends to John's Virtual Birthday Party which is being held at Nice, France :-)))

John and I were receiving and welcoming friends and guests as they arrived at the hotel last night. Some friends had flown in by Magic Carpets. It was a spectacular sight. The hotel staff were in awe and the hotel guests were thrilled by the magic carpets and they wondered how they could get a ride on them :-)

John told me that the green and the pink panels with the musical notes are his favourites in his birthday puzzle for this year.

My favourite is the purple panel with the white flowers. I also like the blue panel with 9 blossoms.

Which ones do you like?

As friends begin to gather in the hotel lobby at 6.00am this morning (virtual time), we will begin our trip for the morning :-)
