I hiked all around the ruggedly beautiful Cap d'Antibes, perhaps the most exclusive chunk of real estate in the entire French Riviera. The Mediterranean views were stunning.

But even more stunning were the villas -- many of which, like the yachts, sat unused. The experience got me thinking of walls, wild wealth and public access. So this video is not very pretty.
