Yesterday the English speaking mothers from my school got together for lunch. There were seven of us who met after dropping our kids off at school. I think there might be one or two other English speakers, but really there aren't many more.... and that's probably out of 150 families at a "bilngual" school.
We met outside of the school and walked to Le Kiosque for good company and a delicious meal. Of course, you have to work to find a bad meal in Paris -- at least outside the tourist areas. We talked about the sales, the spouses, must-go to restaurants, and anything else that came to mind. It was great since we don't usually hang out together as a group.
Everyone enjoyed the meal, and we were all extremely impressed with the presentation of the Coquilles St. Jacques (CSJ). Don't you agree?
Of course, what I found really funny -- and the point of this boring post -- was how they managed to keep it that way...

I'm really surprised they made it to the table like that - isn't presentation 50% of the meal here?

Terry, Thanks. I'm having fun with my camera!
Scubs, Thank you for asking. I use a HP R707. I just bought it a couple of months ago. It got a good rating on amazon. It's a nice camera, and very portable.
Vivi, Well we didn't know what to do with the clothespins, but then the waiters came over to declip them. Very strange!
