#174 Listerine?

Most of the restaurants round here bring you a free drink when you ask for the bill, usually a sweet wine or a shot of liqueur. On Sunday we were given what looked (and tasted) like Listerine Mouth Wash . . . !
I didn't think there was *that* much garlic in the paella.

It seems that, along with a ban on smoking, catering establishments will now have to send customers away with sweet smelling breath so as not to endanger the general public with second hand, potentially polluting and greenhouse effect inducing, hazardous belches.

#173 No Time Toulouse

We went to France for a week. Stopping on our way to see Tom and Carrie in Barcelona.

Then to visit Dave and Jackie in Valras Plage. We intended to ride beside the Canal du Midi for a few days but it was so windy that one day's riding was enough.
Not only that, the WC had something missing . . . . . .

We drove north to see Brian and Maureen who live in this farmhouse near Cahors.

Got one more bike ride in, then back to Spain, stayed a night in Berga, had another drink in Barcelona and then after 5 hours cruising down the A7 . . . . . home :-)

#172 Dos Mayo

As it's my birthday we went for luncheon at the Mena restaurant which has wonderful views overlooking the Mediterranean - and nice food, as well.

The boss gave me a bottle of Moscatel as we were leaving :-)
