... heavy and I did have to haul everything to the museum and back to the hotel which was kind of a pain, but I’m so happy to have food I can’t complain (too much).
I went and found a little bench outside the Musee St-Croix and enjoyed the French version of a BLT (they put the bacon, lettuce, and tomatoes into a blender before putting it in the bread).
