It helps to be hungry when eating a perfect lunch and I didn’t pull into the parking place in front of Bistro Liaison until 2:15. I was famished. Lunch began with a comforting garlic soup. It restores the soul. I’m just as happy they didn’t poach an egg in it as the Spaniards do.
A guilty pleasure, but you can hardly eat moules without frites. One of the unquestionable findings in a long term study of nurses’s diets and health was that fries are the one food directly linked to obesity and premature death. I only eat them once a month.
I was seated in the deserted area across from the booze cabinet. Ideal. I had my own little space. It felt very Euro, with all the exotic labels.
I was bubbling over with ideas, so I wrote a couple of pages in my journal.
Fifty minutes later I was on the road again.
