OLD HABITS DIE HARD


 Such is the case with me. I have not lived in France for years, and unfortunately haven't visited much either, especially now with the pandemic.

However, I still succumb to some very French habits, as seen above. There are now some really good bakeries here that specialize in 'foreign' breads and such. This demi-baguette (don't worry; I bought a whole one...) is for me like Proust's madeleine. One bite and I am in France.

Note the mug and the 'vaches' butter dish, s'il vous plaĆ®t.

YANKEE IN NICE

 Edit: pastis is a licorice-flavored alcoholic drinksimilar to Greek ouzo. My favorite drink as it is for many people in this area. No more ...
