Legends from our own lunchtimes

Friday, May 27, 2011


After a brief "hiatus" when business and blogger  took over from the job in hand, our story continues from where we left off:

I'm not sure how it all works, but in a strange land we found ourselves surrounded by familiarity. When we counted the heads in the evening there were six around the table from the Antipodes. So full is the harbour of New Zealanders and Australians that we all wonder how we will ever learn to speak French, or if when we do, if we will ever find anyone else who can.

The interior of l'Excelsior has not been changed since 1905, the menu may have undergone some slight modifications, and some of the wine was a certainly a little younger and at some time which didn't seem at all too far into the evening, it was Bob who noted that it was 12:30am tomorrow, and we really should get an early night, as when we all arrive in Orleans for the weekend we may be in for a somewhat less relaxing time.

So we retired.
