Last Treats

I bought some chestnuts from one of the roaster/vendors
and took them back to my hotel to munch.
Once carefully peeled,
they were tolerable,
but rather dry and made me thirsty--
quite a bit like a boiled potato in texture,
though a bit sweeter.
I recall I did like them quite well chopped in bread stuffing.
I much preferred my Usual Treat,
which, thanks to the warming weather
(rain and all)
I enjoyed at my favorite ice cream cafe, Franchi:

The flavors are mango (right, darker) and
The latter is my FAVORITE sorbet.
I don't think I've ever been to Strasbourg
without having some.
It's a Tradition.
