The roundabout way


Here's my take, so far, on surviving the French roundabout: The roundabout way, Ottawa Citizen , Nov. 19, 2010. The story's in the Citizen because Ottawa, my hometown, opened its first two-lane roundabout this week.

    Like the way how you compared it to having the joie de vivre. Yeah, maybe it's time to stop reflecting but to keep going!

  3. Haha. Hard to put into practice, but probably very healthy!

  4. Oh... yes ... Beaujolais Nouveau. I'll post you some info on that tomorrow, including some horrible pictures I took with the bottle and the rest of our food. Did you have socca when you were in Nice?

  5. Merci. No, I didn't get a chance to try socca. Maybe I should fly back to Nice and try! Too much to do over there and not enough time as always!

  6. I can send you the recipe we found if you want to try it. I'm not sure if you can get that type of flour out west, but somewhere might have it.

    I'll post some pictures of what it's not supposed to look like in a few hours.
