Grow bison is absolutely magic autocorrect !

Being a good European, last I went to a restuarant with a nice lady I arrive sweating from my velib trip with a T-shirt that I had worn all day, went to the loo and changed into a reasonably not too crumpled shirt after refreshing up a little.

Then some tourist came sitting next to us at the end of our meal. Wearing some kind of a 'Marcel'. Disgusting. Killed any idea of a 'digestif' (or 'digeo' as they say in the south) and we went for a last beer on a terrace...

Please do dress a little when going to restaurants.

St. Cirq's mere mention of Mara des Bois strawberries sets my mouth watering. I don't know of any tastier strawberry than these, unless it is actually a wild strawberry. I'll be returning to the Dordogne in late September, but I expect the season for this delightful fruit will be past by then.

How divine to hear such wonders from STCirq. All the best in France Profonde, your description of your life there has brightened my day.

Soon we go to Paris, but much of me would rather go back to the south

And thank you Thin, for conjuring her up once again, so we remember the marvelous St.Cirq, helper to all southern France goers.

Mel, it is so good to hear from you but it's even better to know that you are happily living your dream. It sounds that runningtab is living his dream as well. We miss you here in fodorville and will miss you more at the next GTG.

What a wonderful update; many thanks St. Cirq!

Reminds me of lunch at Laduree where a local lady whipped out her roll-on deodorant and applied it without skipping a beat.

annw, your reply above makes every minute I have spent on Fodor's absolutely and totally worthwhile! Even not counting the marvelous helpful and interesting posts in the Lounge!
