Food ‘n’ France: Day 2

I woke up at 5 a.m. on May 12, got a call at 6:30 a.m. Met my classmates at CDG an hour or so later, and we proceeded to take a bus to Toulouse. The bus ride took nine hours. The company was great, but severely jet-lagged and lacking in the conversation department for the majority of the trip. We were all grateful when we finally arrived in the southern university town. The sun was shining and our appetites were enormous.

Toulouse had some great parks scattered around the city, perfect for weary travellers to sunbathe and galavant.

Mr. Sun, Sun...

Dinner was at Restaurant le 19.

After the foie gras I (digitally) shared with you all earlier, I had some uber-flaky fish with a tinfoil pocket of vegetables. So light, so lovely.

Dessert: A fruit gratin with champagne. Creme brulee on steroids, essentially.

We went out to a bar briefly after dinner, but we had to rest our bodies in preparation for more road tripping and more feasting.
