Trying new food was one of the trip’s highlights. My favorite thing: the plate of fromage (cheese) served after the main meal. Sampling new foods was only part of the eating experience; discovering a new way of eating was the other. The French don’t rush their meals. They eat in courses and with a wonderful array of wine and that scrumptious cheese and bread I mentioned earlier. My new son-in-law’s mother was an excellent cook and fed us well during the days we spent with them.

There is so much more I could write about, but I’ll not waste more of your time except to say that you should definitely put France (not just Paris) on your list of places to see. It’s truly beautiful. If you go, make a point of getting off the beaten path, for it’s there you’ll see the true face of France and its people. Au revoir.
