“Boeuf” in Cannes

The first port of call on my 12 night Royal Caribbean Mediterranean cruise was Cannes, France.  I found it to be very pleasant and nice…almost too perfect!  I’m not complaining…it’s just that I like the “unusual” in my travels.  Perhaps not exciting enough…no sense of adventure or mystery.  Anyway, after walking for hours…there were only so many shops we could look in…

  A little cappuccino break…

We stopped at a restaurant and the waitresses couldn’t speak much English.  One of the “specials of the day” was something with boeuf  in it.  The waitress kept enunciating it…boof…and finally I said, “What animal sound does it make?  Moo…Moo?”  She agreed that it made the sound, “Moo…Moo!”  When I lived in Germany for a few years in my early 20’s, learning to communicate was essential.

French grafitti…they would have to “one up” everyone else!

  You haven’t experienced France unless you’ve sampled some cheese…

Our next destination is one of my favorites…Cinque Terre, Italy! (I hope the clean-up efforts are going well!)
