|Mussels w/Blue Cheese, ETC|
I ordered Mussels w/Blue Cheese d'Auvergne in cream broth w/onions, parsley, celery and white wine. The mussels themselves were fair to middlin,' but the broth immediately gained traction when I started eating it w/a spoon. The Carolus Triple Blond beer on tap was outstanding. I was in the mood for beer, and this place offers 2 pages worth!

|Check out these tomatoes!|
Outside, the two endless rows of vendors -- many North African, it seemed -- selling produce was mind-bending. There were beautiful beefsteak tomatoes that looked liked they had been grown in individual aspic cups, along with what appeared to be cooked beets. Never saw round courgettes before either. Time for lunch!

What a day! I've only been here less than 36 hours, and so far no rain on my parade...
