Everyone, I’d like you to meet Kam. Kam is one of my oldest friends from college. In fact, she was the first person I met at orientation. We lived on the same floor of an all girls’ dorm and we met in front of the elevator going downstairs. The rest, as they say, is history. We lived on the same floor as each other for the rest of college. We agonized over our majors together, lived through sorority recruitment, celebrated our birthdays together, went to dim sum, spent senior year being angsty about what we were going to do with the big bad future….and so many things in between.
Well, Kam came to visit me as part of her 2011 Eurotrip! This is Kam in front of the OnlyLyon sign.
For dinner the first night we went to a restaurant that specialized in seafood. In particular, we got moules-frites and saumon (mussels-fries and salmon). The photos below are before and after pictures. Yeah, we killed those. The mussels were drenched in a delicious creamy mushroom sauce.
We picniced! Do you see the yellow rose? The baker at the market was giving them out to all the ladies because it was Mother’s Day in France! As for me, I’m holding a locally produced wine. It was yummy.
It was a beautiful day.
But all good things have to come to an end…. For Kam’s last meal in France, we went to this restaurant where you grilled your own meat on really hot stones. It wasn’t nearly as epic as the seafood meal from the night before, but it was still pretty awesome.
