VIVE LA FRANCE!







(from MP in Sarasota)

MY BEST EXPERIENCES IN FRANCE:

- all-time favorite thing to do = put a map in my back pocket, then wander aimlessly in Paris.

- went to a rock festival in Biot in 1970. the promoter ran off with the dough, and the kids rioted. they don't play there.

- staying w/pals Babette & Henri Vosch in Tourette-sur-Loup.

- camping out with LS on Canal St. Martin.

- skiing on Bastille Day in Tigne.

- swimming at Cannes, and seeing this Aryan couple in matching leopard skin swimwear cut thru the darkswarthyfrenchitalians and then disappear into the sea.

- driving the Corniche d'Or in a Renault 5 drunk on champagne and managing not to kill myself.

- best ice cream i have ever had...double dark chocolate gelato on the beach at Saint-Tropez.

- seeing a medieval Christian church carved out of a chaulk cave because the church was banned and had to go underground...literally.

- lunch on LS's farm in the Dordogne in mid-November.

- hitch-hiking from Nice to Monte Carlo...and getting a ride in a Lamborghini Countach.

- attending MIDEM when i had the Number One single.

- hanging out at the house in Cap Ferrat where the Rolling Stones recorded Exile On Mainstreet

- having Simone's mom make us ratatouille.

- taking the TGV to anywhere. and/or Le Tran Bleu to Nice.

- Nice in general

- staring up at the Eiffel Tower for hours on end with nothing else to do but stare up at the Eiffel Tower for hours on end.

- lunch in a Lyon park...simple, raw peasant food but, man...so good.

...i could go on and on.
