Lunch

I love how seriously people take lunch here. (well, until I need to get in touch with someone out to lunch, and then I grow bitter.)

You sit outside, you relax, you enjoy your food. You don't scald your mouth on your wrap-up coffee because you know your time is short before your absence is noticed. You linger. It makes for a nice day. I really don't think you could get the staff to hurry on with things anyway.

Afterwards, I allow myself to continue my obsessive search for the perfect macaroon.

If the sun peaks out, there is a flurry of activity as the population rejoices and heads to the parks. Everywhere you look, people are in full out relaxation mode. No one is multitasking on their blackberry or looking like they need to get back to something. It's all about the lounging and chatting.
