unpresumptuosity

with one comment

I absolutely love how here in France rich wines and cheeses are usual.  Yesterday for lunch, my lab mentor went out and bought baguettes, pate, wine, and cheese for the lab—a “little picnic” he said.  Such a lunch would be guffawed at in the states as dandy-ness.  However, there was absolutely nothing dandy about our picnic arrangement:  We ripped bread out of their brown paper bags, we had great cheeses right out of their plastic wrappers, and we drank 10 year old Bordeaux Superieur from plastic cups.  It’s not about the high-brow elegance or sophistication.  It’s about the simple quality, richness, and experience of the food itself.

  1. When I was traveling around Argentina by bus, my seat leaned all the way back nearly horizontal like a bed.

    And we not only got meals, we were served wine in plastic cups along with it.

    Plus we had a coffee break after dinner with little cookies.
