The Daily Hilario: WAGNH on Tour, Day 3

Your daily dose of off-topic shenanigans.

Yesterday's big discovery was that socca, which seems to be served everywhere, is pretty great and goes really well with what also seems to be the ubiquitous non-wine choice at just about every establishment: Leffe.  Not sure why Belgian beers are so popular this far south, but I ain't complaining.

Socca is basically a pancake/crepe made from garbanzo bean flour (chickpea flour).  Put some salt, pepper, olive oil on it and it's a lovely snack.

With my sleep schedule a bit messed up, I also found that late night French TV gets a bit weird, with programs like Voyage au bout de la nuit (Journey to the edge of the night?), which appears to be a variety show consisting mostly of interviews and readings, the latter of which literally consists of the host(s) sitting there and reading a book.  Not even joking.  Sometimes, the host just happens to be a good-looking woman in semi-enticing clothing and poses.  It's like your standard late night variety T&A show, but without any actual T&A and no stupid shenanigans and more classic literature.  Yeah, France!

Today, the plan is to take the train to Monaco for a daytrip.  Which Monaco player should I steal, should I run across him?  Bernardo Silva?
