Pourquoi Pas? (Paris, France, 07-12-Aug-13)

At lunch at a small bistro in the 1st arrondissement after touring the Louvre, Roger and the owner got caught up on a discussion of car sounds including Lamborghini, Ferrari, Jag F type. Agreeing that the Aston Martin is both mean and classy, Katie interjected, “like him,” pointing to Roger. We got a laugh and a Roger received a handshake with the phrase, “Je vous respecte” (I respect you). Well done. He then poured three shots of Calvados as we wished him a “Bon Vacance” as he was to leave the city the next day for Brittany.

Trying to drink through an entire menu of 9-11% draft Belgian beers is ill-advised. Yikes. Favorites were Kwak and Chouffe.

Paris in August = the tourists rush in and the locals leave. Clever signage.

The last supper…..fois gras, escargots, duck confit, chocolate mousse….enough said.
