French beer is something like... you don't really want to associate with France,-plain, watery, no bite etc. That day I did not have any Euros on me, so waiter asked me first,- "Quest que ca veut dire, cette merde la ?!" , but shortly after was so stunned by rather phenomenal artistic value of banknotes carrying Maria Sharapova, Raquel Welch and Sharon Stone that I had no issues with paying the final bill ! Actually, it was my pal Dave Beedon http://www.pbase.com/listorama/profile who inspired me to travel with true money, which I am really grateful to him for ! Prost !
