Six Pounds!







Yes, I gained six pounds on my recent trip to France. Why you ask? These photos may shed some light on the reason. The delicious pie was placed in front of me as part of the plat du jour (plate of the day) I ordered for 12 euros in the town of Albi. I had to eat the whole thing as I didn't want to offend the waiter. The chocolate shop was on a corner with its door open and I had to step in and once I was inside I had to buy something. Then there was this lovely artisan faire in the village of Durfort and this lovely baker had this display of pastries on his table and he smiled at me and I had to purchase a pain aux raisin pastry from him. I am going to walk on the treadmill now.

It's amazing how attractive food can just jump on you like that...I found more pounds than that in China, Japan and Scotland this summer!!
