141. Petit dejeuner ... nice way to start the day.
Lunch at the company cafeteria was a 90-minute relaxed meal ... with wine or beer. Thus, I always started the day with cafe au lait and croissants. I was told (and I believe it) that Americans got the worst coffee ... after Europe bought the best beans. Most Americans make their coffee as barely-flavored hot water. I never had a bad cuppa in Europe .. anywhere.

At one hotel in Belgium (Hotel Amigo in Brussels) the morning coffee service (in the room) included those little creamer cups with the peel-off paper seals ... with one difference. Instead of plastic, the little cups were chocolate! Boy, did I love THAT!

Ahh.... memories. Good times.
