Marseilles

Hope you're not bored of them because here's another batch of photos from our trip to France, this time from Marseilles.  We had a wonderful day there, just walking around...


We ate boullibaise and drank rose in the port. I know it looks like he was, but that crab was not alive, crawling out the primordial soup to kick my ass. He was delicious though. (or so Steven said. I couldn't bring myself to eat him.  too cute.) 

(btw, I made Julie Child's bouibaise recipe for a dinner party the other night... more on that later.) 



Maybe it was because we'd seen so many austere restored ancient churches and modern Corbusier buildings earlier in the trip, but I loved the cathedral with all its excessive everything.

Keep the photos coming! I love them and I love hearing about anything French.

Sigh, I cannot get myself to ever eat a whole crab like that. freaks me out.
