From Grasse through the Cevennes

Leaving Grasse (view from window above), I drove my Hertz BMW 4 wheel drive armoured assault vehicule past Marseilles and up into les CÄvennes to visit La Bambouseraie, an incredible bamboo park and forest.
Beautiful part of France.

Japanese dinner

Still rushing around. Stayed in very nice Chambres d'Hotes in Grasse near Cannes, the villa Coste d'Or.

Hertz very kindly upgraded my hire car, instead of an Opel Corsa I got a huge BMW assault tank which guzzled fuel faster than I could fill it up.

Japanese birthday dinner included this shrimp dish
- boil some shrimps for 2 minutes, drain and plunge into cold water
- peel shrimps leaving the tail on
- marinate in a mixture of rice vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, sesame oil finely chopped ginger and garlic
- add some finely sliced and peeled cucumber to the marinade
- serve sprinkled with sesame seds

Japanese chicken with seaweed
- Marinate small chicken pieces in the above marinade mixture
- Drain and roll in a mixture of cornflour and finely chopped Nori (Japanese seaweed used for making sushi)
- Fry in a little oil in the wok until chicken pieces are nice and crispy.
