The farewell dinner went really well and was a blast. We went to a great restaurant which was in a basement and felt like we were in a castle or cave. We were serenaded with songs from our countries and it was the first big meal we got to choose from a menu. No one will believe me but I tried a ton of foods at dinner as I was cheered on by everyone. You will believe me when you see the pics, but I ate French onion soup, blue cheese cheese, AND snails and frog legs and duck!!!!!! We'll see what my stomach thinks on the flight back!
Oh- I forgot to mention that after visiting Notre Adams yesterday I was walking over a nearby bridge, saw a piece of paper flying my way, stepped on it, picked it up and found out it was a5 Euros! How exciting. Maybe all of those lucky wishes and myths I participated in are starting to work??? One can hope.
****And now what you've all been waiting for.... I have to eat my words. I did try new foods in my last night in Paris. I ate French Onion soup, Snails, Frog legs, and duck.*****
Below is the PROOF for all of you non believers!
French Onion soup
Preparing for snails.
Gross and rubbery! No wonder they had so much garlic butter on them...to try and make them taste better. Didn't work!
Man- I hope I didn't just eat my Prince Charming. :) Actually it didn't really taste that bad.
I know I know...I make faces before I even eat it. It was actually good.
Now this is a meal- this was my actual heavenly perfect meal minus the veggies.
Amazing chocolate mouse.
