Why Not Street


This translates to "Why Not" street... So, why not go for a bike ride? 

Arzon is a peaceful port village in Brittany. Some friends bought an apartment there... Great place for crêpes, caramel butter, all things "Bretagne."

I ♥ French expressions


J’ai d’autres chats à fouetter.
I have other fish to fry.

The McBaguette


Two all-beef patties, special sauce, cheese, lettuce, pickles, no onions, mustard, and certainly NOT on a sesame seed bun!* This is the McBaguette, McDonald's newest burger creation in France.

McDo (mic-doh') as they call it here, has combined an all-American tradition with its classic bread. We brought an American friend to McDo for a taste test on his recent visit. After all, where else do you bring an American to try out the latest gastronomie française?

Anddddddd? ...he actually liked it.

*If you're too young to remember this, it was from an ad in the 80's that challenged Big Mac fans to cite all the ingredients in the classic burger... To watch a sing-songy British version of the same, click here.

Bears or Bulls?


Translation: Wall(s) Street...

Located in Longueville, France, Seine et Marne department...

Street of Choice?


I'd especially go for living here if it intersected with Rue de Glace (Ice Cream Street). One can dream.

Actually, a pie is a magpie. It is also slang for chatterbox, so maybe I really should be living here...

This was from Provins, France. It's a lovely, well-preserved medieval city in the Seine et Marne department about 40 minutes from us...
