Flashback Friday


Today I will post a few pictures and comments about my trip to France.

Milk is found on the shelf with the other groceries. No refrigeration is needed until it is opened. Can't say it really tastes that much like our milk, although it was not too bad.

There were jars with veggies stacked 2 and 3 high, very convenient.

This is an ATM for renting videos. It was on the outside wall of the video store and could be used 24 hours a day. Insert your video store card, select your movie (using a browse or search ), pay with cash or credit card and be on your way in about a minute. Movies could be returned the same way and could be rented for as little as 6 hours. Inside the movies were rented by the day just like back home. The same rates did not apply inside. Daily rentals were much cheaper inside the store, but if you just wanted to grab a movie and view it and come right back you couldn't beat the price.

That's interesting, about the milk. I wonder how they process it?
Of course, in the States most people refrigerate things that don't really need refrigeration. Eggs, for example. Well, they do keep longer that way, but they keep a couple of weeks without refrigeration. A lot of other things, too. Maybe I'll write an article about it.

I think I'd worry about that milk. Of course, I refrigerate lots of things that I probably don't have to.

I can't remember what its called here in the states but you can buy it that doesn't have to be refrigerated. Its not too bad if you make hot chocolate, great for camping.
