What ho, France followers!  I've been in Nantes for the past three days, and lacking internet access, I actually had more to experience the wonder and mystery of France.  So, to sum up:

  • Galettes = crepes with fillings like bacon, mushrooms and cream, or ham, mushrooms and cream.
  • The aforementioned galettes were my delicious dinner two nights in a row
  • Then I followed that up with crepes filled with honey and lemon
  • The French meal plan: Breakfast (brioche, pain sucree, toast, whatever, all covered with nutella) around 8-9 am.  Lunch, anything you want that is not a sandwhich, anytime from 1-3 pm (everything closes for lunch, too!).  Dinner, anywhere from 8-11 pm (a dinner party last night: 3 courses, spanning 3 hours, and dessert was served at 11:30!)
  • Wine for $1.  Better wine than you find for $10 in Canada.
Is there anything else to France than food?  Not really, as far as I'm concerned!  Well, there are scarves, too.  And large, phallic buildings, I guess.  It's been good, though!  Now we're in Paris again, for our last night, on our way to a Greatest Hits concert of classical music.  The concert's happening in a multi-century old building, so the acoustics should be good, at least.  So long from France!
