I decided to go to a Patricia Kaas concert during March break. This meant I would fly to Amsterdam, take a train to Paris, a train to Annecy and a cab to Geneva. What I will do to see a concert!

It was COLD in Amsterdam, particularly riding a bike through the countryside. However, once I got to Paris I warmed up to the food and the sights! One memorable meal took place at Bofinger, a famous bistro in Paris, known not only for its food but also for its authentic ambience.

As usual, I wrote in my journal during dinner and spoke at length to the waiter. At the end of my delicious dinner ( oysters, lamb with olives, 1/2 bottle of Cotes du Rhone, and an apple crumble dessert), the 2 American ladies sitting next to me asked if I was a restaurant critic. They assumed this because of my note-taking and speaking french to the waiter. Hmmm….my next career?
