Apparently I have to reach 5 posts to have full privileges. Well, it's kinda late but Bistro caught my attention. If anyone cares Bistros are called as they are because before the Bolshevik revolution in 1917 that overthrew Nicolas II and eventually led to Soviet Union, Cold War and so on. Before that major event in History (with a capital H) there were many Russian "tourists" in Paris. They were wealthy and impatient, pretty much like today (it seems history does repeat itself:)) And so they would sit down at Parisian cafés and yell Bystro which means "Hurry up!" in Russian. It happened all the time and so the name stuck. Today we go to Bistros:)
To relate that to post topic, if you're ever in a Bistro and have nothing to say all of a sudden, maybe this little story will get you out of the silence which may become awkward if it lasts for a while:)
Well I have three more posts to go, no more inspiration tonight. I'll save the best for later:)))
Yours Truly,
