Fantastic photographs... lifetime treasure to ponder till aging... thanks for sharing that beauty in that world Dirk!

as i may noticed, might the coffee book and the CDs had already earned for 2 years before we recognize it here today? I must say that the book is so much worthy to have in every rider's coffee table. whatever contained therein, i'd like to say thank you so much for taking us a peek ...

I still do. And 2013 could become a year of hidden trails. I'd be happy to search the Dolos for their gems with you. Only this bloody winter has to pass ...

5th of March - prologue

From Narbonne I'm riding straight to Marseilles.

If you - like me - live north of the Alps you're dreaming the same dream every year after a looong winter: The dream of the warm south. But Marseilles is not the place to make your dream come true in March. Icy winds from the still snowy Alps blow down the Rhône-Valley and then blast through Marseilles with its narrow roads.


Marseilles was founded by Greek sailors over 2000 years ago as trading port. This town smells like history, salty air and the promise of the nearby Orient. Marseilles is France's gateway to Northern Africa.



Riding through the streets my fingers feel like fish fingers you've taken out of the deep freezer only 2 minutes ago. I need a place to warm up. But quickly!

Right at the old port there's the Restaurant Le Miraramar. From what I've heard, a good place to enjoy the Bouillabaisse, the famous Marseillan fish soup. Well, a hot soup would be perfect....



I'm surprised to be welcomed by the cook himself, Christian Bouffa. What I learned lateron is that he is a disciple of French cook legend Paul Bocuse.


Anyway, after ordering the soup, the waiter arrives with something not really beeing similar to a soup. "This is just a starter to kill time till the soup is ready". He speaks of course French and my French is a bit ... rotten. The first misunderstanding is on its way. His next question is not: "What do you prefer to eat, chicken and shrimps or (in the background) Manchego-cheese with truffles?"



The question was:"What do you prefer to eat first? Chicken or Manchego?" Ok, first chicken, then Manchego. But... what about the soup?




He arrives again and explaines that they usually serve the soup in six courses.




Can you imagine? Six times this plate? I ask for a shortcut resulting in four courses.




Then a specially trained dessert-waitress shows up to ask me about my wish for a my sweet tooth. I go for something small (Mousse au chocolat with coconutcream) after the Manchego-chicken-four-courses-soup only to find out that this again is only the starter.



Here's the dessert-menu then. Not to forget the nasty things left from the wineglass.



From the restaurant I go straight back to my room in a small hotel. It's about 4 in the afternoon. I decide to take a little nap and to get rid of the fear my stomach may explode. I wake the next day at 10 in the morning. Setting off is postponed for one day. But who cares? I have nine month

They're definetly not kidding with the food in France!

Awesome pics, did you set them up by yourself? Seems like a lot of back and forth if you did, but the result is excellent!

French gastronomy... nothing else quite like it... thanks for the delicious pics and the fond memories of the food ritual in France.. It's the complete oppoosite of our fast food culture here in north america.

bon voyage mon ami!

I think you are another one of David's waifs and strays like us?

Cheers

Yep. As a was riding alone almost every pic was taken by me or the remote timer. It's only a few times when I met people (f.e. kktos) that I've asked somebody to push the button. And yes, you're right with the back and forth Even more for the movie shots. But I enjoyed every minute. No matter if it was back or forth.

Thanks for your compliment, efcharisto!

Yep. I was the one who advised Kimangao on shutter speeds and apertures whilst I tried to change the roll of film in his digital camera. It's obvious that he didn't listen to a single word I said, fortunately

Crack on Dirk........................


Cheers,


Dave Bird
