Absolutely Not Your Monkey

Paris, etc., part 8

We went to Versailles today. The train trip was long. Versailles was magnificent. French people, I’ve noticed, get really upset if you try to pay for things with large bills. I’m not talking about little stands and the like where someone might have trouble, but large businesses.

After we got back we had dinner at the Dome, the restaurant where many famous people hung out back in the day. The other patrons glared at us, but the food was good.

  1. Ever read David Sedaris’s reflections on the French? (Japan is the best for dropping big bills.)

  2. I have not, but I’ll look for it.
