|Cotes du Rhone..|
I ordered a pizza de chevre chaud from the set menu and it turned out to be absolutely enormous! The people sat next to me laughed at me, and one even offered to help me out with it!! ...I did eat about half, but declined the half-raw egg in the middle...slightly strange French obsession with putting undercooked eggs on things!
|Raw egg...is this really necessary?!|
I then remembered that I had desert included in my meal...so I went for the cream...
...and then a coffee!
I walked home feeling decidedly stuffed and had to have a little lie down like an old man! oh dear...
Lunch does seem to be quite a big deal in France though... Children get 2 hours at school and its a proper sit-down meal! Soup, a main course, bead and cheese and then fruit and a yoghurt! Everyone seems to eat a lot more food at lunchtime and then have a lighter dinner. Maybe that's the secret... there are hardly any really big people here...so different from England and good old Trow...
In the evening I went to the apartment of some Canadian people called Krista and Jonathan who I met at Church on Sunday. I went along with Ian and Maria (English and American) who I also met at church, and there were some other English speaking people there who work with Jonathan! We had a really hilarious evening playing games (Killer Bunnies, anyone?!) and eating cake!
It was just really great to hang out with some great people and feel I know a few people in this city now!
God is really blessing this time away for me so far, and even though I'm shattered after a long week, I have a smile on my face!
Love to you all xxx
