Day 12 - Dinner last night at le Bistro
I am sorry that I haven't written more here. I must tell you that it is very important to understand the full menu when ordering food. Last night I ordered Rognol de veau grillé, thinking that I understood. Well I did understand veau (veal) and grillé (grilled). It is important not to ignore principle words like rognol. I received something that was unrecognizable, awkward looking and unattractive. It was convoluted lumps of something that smelled to me like wet diaper. It had the texture of soft leather. I tried it, a little more and then left it. The lady next to us informed me after consulting her pocket dictionary, that it meant kidney. Now I looked forward to dessert which was good. Talk to you soon again. Thank you for commenting. I cannot respond freely on borrowed french keyboards. Au revoir.
