2015/12/23 Another Xmas with My Dad
π 2015-12-23 01:01 in Dining, Family
This year, I arrived on Dec 23rd, without Jennifer who was resting at home after her ankle surgery (better recovery if she's not battling sleep deprivation due hard to beat jet lag, which would often give her a cold, and then even bacterial infection, making the trip not that fun and bad for surgery recovery). Thanks for a good enough night in the business united seat (a bit tight, but lay flat), I was not in too bad a shape when I arrived.
We went to have some couscous when I arrived:


Soon thereafter was Xmas Eve, and my brother and his family were invited, which gave my dad a chance to do a round of cooking for us:







On the 29th, we went out in Paris and had a good dinner at La Fermette Marboeuf and its very nice decors:








Soon later, for New Year's Eve, James and Lilian joined us, as well as Tata. Tata did her famous sweetbread

On Jan 2nd, we went to see a musical "Irma La Douce", which was quite well acted with a few hints of today's changes into a story that's more than 50 years old:





On the way out, we had a nice dinner close to the theatre:


And just because we were a bit hungry still, on Jan 3rd, we went to Les Bouquinistes, they had a good tasting menu that was quite reasonably priced:






And after a day at Google on Jan 4th, which I also used to walk around Paris a bit while weather was good, it wsa time to go home and pack for reasonably early flight on the 5th. Great to see everyone again.
