This one’s for Lolo… Aside from Paul’s home-cooked meal, this has to be the best food I’ve eaten in Strasbourg thus far. I spotted this cozy little restaurant on Place St-Etienne as I was looking for a different restaurant. But the thought of a good French crepe propelled me across the plaza and though the doors. I was immediately charmed by the menu, each copy of which was printed inside the front cover of a children’s book. I ordered the Printaniere: salad, egg, tomato, anchovy, olives. And then of course how could I not order a chocolat citron crepe for dessert? Heavenly!
One of my classmates, Paul, hosted a barbecue for the class at his home in Colmar. A 30-minute train ride south of Strasbourg, Colmar is a pretty town with tiny canals. Unfortunately, it was raining, so no wandering about for us. Barbecue was moved inside and we had a lovely time.
L to R around the table: Me, Nicholas, Xuan, Hal, Sian, Cathy, Stacie and Paul. We were missing 4 people, but otherwise it’s a good snapshot of the class.
Did I mention that Paul’s been to cooking school? 🙂
We were off to see the fireworks tonight at Place de l’Etoile. “We” means Sian (with her camera), Xuan and Cathy.
Postcard photographers must have no problems getting good snaps of Strasbourg. Everywhere you turn, you see another perfect vignette. Sorry for the lack of captions, but the wifi in the dorm is a bit shaky. I’m uploading in small batches whenever the connection seems good.
Blink and you might miss it, but it’s locatedin a very nice neighborhood near the Botanic Gardens and the University.
