Today we met our home exchange hosts, Marie-Ange and Geraldine, for lunch in a suburb of Bordeaux. The restaurant was in a redecorated old home, and we ate on the lovely patio. Marie-Ange, who has lived all her life in Bordeaux, chose an excellent wine from Pessac Leognan. Like most French restaurants, this one offered a set menu, and we could choose from pork or fish. Each course was well-presented and delicious. We are trying to make the adjustment to the French custom of having a very large meal, with wine, in the middle of the day!
