Once again.....beautiful photos!! I had my first oyster on my 5th trip to France and from the moment I put it in my mouth I was filled with regret at turning up my nose at them on my previous trips. Lesson learned.

Lovely photos! I love the "Jambon de Pata Negra" sign! So, did you also have the oysters? I have always found it strange that in France they are quite affordable and in Spain they are so expensive. Besos
