Sunday morning drool

The line-up for bread Sunday morning at the best

bakery on the rue Mouffetard.
I was standing in this queue, slavering over the displays, when the local church bells all began to peal at once – it was 11 a.m. A moment of sheer bliss.
How not to be grateful to this country? I came home with a hot croissant, which I pulled apart slowly and ate with my eyes closed. There’s a little tarte au citron in the kitchen, a lemon tart, for after lunch.

  1. I need a brie, tomato, and dijon mustard sandwich immediately, and have no brie, tomato, or French bread at the moment. I guess I'll have a spoonful of mustard.

    Not quite the same, Robert. Time to go shopping. Hop on a plane and I'll show you where to go.
