The evening started with champagne and strawberry wine apéritif, then went on to a gargantuan dinner (carpaccio, snails, salmon tagliatelle, poire wiliam sorbet, capriolo with potato gratin, nougat mousse) and an evening of dancing.
Maybe the dinner, maybe the alcohol, maybe the dancing, I'm not sure what it was, but I ended up sleeping until well into the afternoon the next day, completely missing another gargantuan meal for Christmas lunch !!
This is going to be a short post, as tomorrow is our first field visit to the CASE stations (no such thing as Boxing Day out here...). We leave in the morning, and shall stay out the whole day. We have finished preparations, and are all getting an early night to be fit and ready for tomorrow.
Merry Christmas everyone!
