finding happiness in Bordeaux

Untitled
Exactly one year ago, I was in Bordeaux, France, to visit a few châteaux in Pessac-Léognan, Sauternes, and Barsac. I was thrilled beyond imagination. I was also very, very hungry. You see, for the duration of my summer internship in Zaragoza, I committed myself to working hard at the office, exercising, and sticking to a diet of egg whites, sausages, toast, and lettuce. Something about not being a sponsored student, and having to make that money stretch for another 10 months.

But the internship was over. I was in France. I was hungry. On the recommendation of my Airbnb host, I went to a local joint, Le Petit Commerce for fish. Lots of fish, starting with a tuna tartare ...

... and because I couldn't be drinking a Sauternes alone ... I had found happiness in Bordeaux.
