More tales from the Road

A Guide to the French. Handle With Care., The New York Times

1 British pound = 1.26 Euros and they still complain. I often joke that the English invented parsimony, I am beginning to believe they learned it from the Normans.

That was a great piece in the NYT — thanks. And what a charming photo (and butcher)! I can still remember the butcher whose shop was on the corner of our street a million years later. And when my favorite neighborhood grocery went out of business a few years ago I followed the butcher (who was another charmer and probably in his 70s at least) to a new grocery just to be able to see him and have him help me with my purchases.
