In the early 80's, I remember sitting on steps in front of the Sacre Coeur in Montmatre on a beautiful warm spring night about 1am with the (then) love of my life. We had a bottle of red wine, and some cheese and fresh bread that we had bought earlier in the evening and were enjoying the lights of Paris while listening to a fellow playing classical guitar tunes farther down the steps. This article brought back wonderful memories of a romantic evening. I can almost smell the bread and taste the wine today. Thank you for a wonderful article.

I have wept after reading poweful articles about great wrongs such as the Holocuast but Nidra's article is the first to make my mouth water,
One of my favorite films is "Sahara" with Humphrey Bogart. A small band of Allied soldiers is trapped at a desert well and reminisce about what they will do when they get home. A Free French soldier simply yearns for a little bread, wine and onion (a wish that is hearily seconded by an imprisoned Italian soldier)..
