Lunch was the first order of business.
|Rognons with fries. The sauce was very good indeed and took a lot of sopping up|
|Pork in a brie sauce with noodles. |
The sauce was in effect just melted brie. Why spoil a good cheese by adding something to it?
|Frozen nougat with a strawberry sauce|
|Half timberes buildings are very common in Provins|
|Vegetation seems to be getting the upper hand at many locations|
|Moss on a slate roof|
|Moss and vegetation on a tree|
We came back to Paris. While waiting for the road at Longueville a big diesel came roaring through with an express from the Belfort area. We caught up with it in the Gare de l'Est.
|These are being replaced by new multiple unit trains. Their days are numbered|
We caught the no. 30 bus from the Gare de l'Est. It is always fun going along Magenta and Clichy. Surprisingly there were empty seats - late afternoon on a Saturday. But then the brigade of old ladies with large shopping carts was absent.
We went into Androuet, the fromager on Levis to get a Camembert. The assistant explained that if we found a feve in it they would give us another one. In the paast we have only had feves in the galette du roi. Yesterday at Saint-Germain we saw a butcher advertising "poulet du roi". I presume it is the same idea. The cheese is good, as is the Langres, bought at the same time, but so far we haven't found a feve. The assistants in the shop seem to have such a good time selling cheese.
