September 13- A day to volunteer, go to a movie, and try Flunch

I spent the morning volunteering at the American Church in Paris weekly meal for homeless and needy people.  The meal is served in the church social hall.   The tables are set up with place settings, and the meal is served to the guests at the table in three courses.  The menu was beef bourgenoine, mashed potatoes, salad, cheese, and ice cream with homemade brownies.  A meal anyone would be pleased to eat. I enjoyed the chance to serve and meet some other volunteers.  I hope to be able to continue to do this on Friday morning.

                                                        Some of the tables set for lunch.
Al went to his French class.  And then we met up for a movie.

We went to "End of the World". We have enjoyed Simon Pegg’s two previous films, but this one seemed to re-use some of his previous plots and humor. OK but not wonderful.  Here are the two popcorn options- salt or sugar. Al is salty. I am sweet. At least in our choice of popcorn.

We then had dinner at Flunch- the French version of Old Country Buffet.  You pay for a meat (6-9E), and then go to an unlimited buffet of vegetables and potatoes. The quality was good, and the price very good.  You can finish up the meal with a 1E ice cream cone.  Wine is 1E90 for a 2-glass carafe. Bon appetit.
