Ten Days in Paris: A Digital Diary of Our Adventure, Nuevième Jour: Moments Meant to Be Cherished
Our last night in France we found a quiet local restaurant in Nice that would be the setting for a celebratory dinner in honor of the trip. We ordered their regional Rosé and several courses including a sea bass and roasted vegetables, a zuchinni lasagna and beet salad, and for dessert, a chocolate mouse and a chef recommendation, la recette de sa maman (his mother's recipe). The dinner was delightful. Looking back on the trip, I decided the number one thing I have learned is to value a meal and those whom you share it with. This basic human need is something the French do not take lightly and it's clear that they may be happier because of it. Carving time out of your day to enjoy coffee with a friend or the act of sitting down for dinner rather than rushing through, are parts of life I sometimes take for granted. These moments are what mostly makes up life and for that reason I have learned, are meant to be cherished.
