Carmina Beurre-ana

Many of the restaurants in Montpellier inhabit beautiful stone buildings with vaulted ceilings--Maxime explained to me that because Montpellier is built on rock and one cannot really have a basement here, these stone rooms used to serve as cellars in the middle ages. Although these structures are very common here, Eric and I always feel transported to another time when we are underneath the vaults. We went out to dinner at one such restaurant last night.

(Note: Our food was perfectly tasty, even if it wasn't nearly as dramatic as the music filling our ears, and our waitress must have noticed that she forgot our kirs, because she gave us a pair of complimentary cognacs at the end of our meal.)
