Trying a recipe that it says makes a better lemonade or limeade. Basically, you squeeze the juice out, then chop the half rinds into quarters or eights.  Weigh them, then mix them in a bowl with half their weight in sugar. Let it sit for a couple of hours, then mix with the juice and some water (according to taste).

We'll see tomorrow.

Of course, what I really want is some authentic limonade in France.  Right now, its about a 70% chance that we'll go at the end of the month.  The floods are receding, but the big strikes - in particular, Air France and SNCF - have no end-dates. 

I'd like to say that getting stuck in Paris would not be so bad, but at Parisian hotel rates -- um, yeah, it totally would. Looking at this site a lot.

It used to be that travel was only bad in very specific places in the world. Now you have to be careful and plan and get insurance no matter where you travel.

Yeah. The cost of the insurance added ten percent to the cost of the trip!
