These are photos of cat food from the small store near the train station.  The owner of the store looked at me like I was a nut case, and made a [presumably snide] comment in French.  My response was "Tourist, no French", which sent him packing.  I like the way they have digitally altered the cat's face--kind of cute.

The bakery near the train station.  Since I speak no French and the bakery employees speak no English, we kind of worked out a system.  I point to what I want, signal quantity with fingers, and hold out a handful of Euro coins so they can take what they want.  The system seemed to amuse the other customers, but it worked.

For 080, I could get a big loaf of bread.  Look at the size of that thing!  You'd think it was a sword!

Photos at the Cergy-St. Christophe RER station.  Today's destination will be The Real McCoy Company, which specializes in American foods.  I need Oreo cookies!

Here we are at The Real McCoy.  The prices are outrageous (I paid something approaching $10 for a bag of Oreo cookies), but worth it ...
