how many pieces of pommes tart?


None, which was called like you write above. Laughing



(But I've tried tarte de pommes and tarte Tatin in various places - just for academic reasons of course: trying to find out local and regional diffrences by the differences of baking a basic food product. :wink: )

You have to be careful and feel the moment when, being thrown one, "la tarte t'atteint"...

Il y peut-être des pierres dans les tartes ... de pêches, de cerises, d'apricots ... :wink:

That's exactly what all Americans and Britons thaught, who stayed in my hotel - which led to the fact that the some 50 Japanese there spoke only English as well :wink:

yeah I know what you mean Walter.

Its even worse for me, at least you speak another foreign language (maybe several) very well


I go to France and parle mon Francais magnifique and you know what? The kiosk salesperson tells me the right money in English..

And the Japanese tourist never even hesitates to speak English, just assuming someone looking like me cant be French. I tell ya IT HURTS.

Why cant you people just stop speaking english?

Even Chinese....which reminds me chicken chow mein mit noodles and Arsenal v Real

bye

Back to the topic .... here :wink:

The café is situated just outside Paris, in St. Quentin, in the center of the (Paris) "Marchés des Puces" (fleemarkets).


So we take a short look at the hundreds of antique shops there ...

Very nice pictures Walter. 200 photos in three or four days?
You're probably coming home with 2000 pictures after you've
been to the United States.
