This past May I went to Paris. It was my first time returning to the City of Lights since having lived there all of 1992 when I was part of the opening management team for Disneyland Paris. In the coming weeks, I plan on putting together a few postings about my food experiences from the trip.
The highlight of the Paris trip, though, was the day I took the TGV from the Gare du Nord in Paris to Pontarlier, which is near the Swiss border for a tour of a working absinthe distillery there.
Staring at the departure board in the Gare du Nord, looking for what platform my train was on. It was #17, all the way on the other side of the station
3 1/2 hours later, we were in Pontarlier.
