Michel and Matthieu

Matthieu and Michel...(too bad Matthieu's head was cut off).

The Marché de Fleurs in Nice is wonderful. Restaurants flank both sides with people outside enticing customers in.

I passed up lobster, my absolute favorite food. I'm so glad I did because just a few restaurants later Michel with his pestle which he used as a faux micro invited us in.

It turned out not just a delicious meal, but one of the most fun ones I've had in a long, long time.

My rabbit and Rick's pork jowls cooked in red wine was lick-the-plate good.

Michel had two customers from America yesterday. As they walked by he grabbed them and introduced us. They were from Woburn. I grew up in the next town, Reading.

Matthieu, the water made a game of placing the glasses just so. And when I took a photo, he took the camera and is the only waiter in history that took not just the polite one shot, but several from different angles.

Michel and I became involved in a deep conversation about the state of the world ending, with the three of us singing "We will Overcome" right before we left.
