Beef jerky is carrpachio. Yuck! Tonights menu starts with "Ocean plate". No thank you. I opted for fresh bread, local cheese and a pastry from VInnies "best bakery in the world followed up with apple and, naturally, chocolate. Food fit for a Queen.
Today VInnie took me up to Courcheval. The Weather was perfect, the views stunning and with fresh snow last night the slopes were crowded. I felt guilty about taking him away from his beloved skiing.
At dinner last night I got into a conversation with a lady from the West Indies. She had come over to lose weight because the themal waters here have special properties. Unfortunately she stepped off the plane and collapsed with accute bronchitis had to spend 5 days in hospital. They now say that she is not well enough to take the mineral water treatment.
She has been widowed for 4 years and said it doesn't get any better with time. In an odd way this pleased me because I wouldn't want it to although I do hope to be able to deal with it and allow myself to enjoy life.
