Come to the cabaret my friend

UPDATED with M's escargot video

oh boy did we go to the cabaret and it was totally worth the 60 euro p/p it cost (we have a Euro symbol on the keyboard, two actually, do I know how to make them work? No.
Grr.

We went to the Lido show, which is located on the Champs- Elysees, he main avenue in Paris. It was so magnificent, I wish we had been allowed to take pictures but alas we weren't.

Unfortunately this is as good as it gets. It really was as spectacular as this picture though. We also saw the Eiffel Tower with its lights blinking, which it only does for ten minutes a night, probably because it costs an absolute bomb to do.
We have noticed a lot of wind farms here though, so maybe their energy is greener than back home.
The last quick thing, I have eaten the escargot! Yay me! Of an entree of 6, I ate 5, and M managed 1. Video of his experience here soon! :0


Count as he gags. FOUR TIMES he says, while trying to swallow it.

6 kindred spirits ~ This bugs them too!:

Mega Jealous!!
Totally.

60 Euro, that's hefty but looks like a once in a lifetime show.

So you are PRO escargot eh? Or did you just really really want to give it a fair go?
I assume it wold just taste like what ever seasoning was on it? hehe

Paris, wheee!

Was the escargot squishy? Did it taste like chicken?

Looks awesome! And how cool is the Champs Elysee!

Reanan ~
Well for 60 euros, we got the show and champagne, but we saw outside it was actually 90 euros for what we gt and apparently Moulin Rouge is like 200 euro!!!
So worth it.

Re Escargot----
It was meant to be garlic flavour, which is why I thought I would give it a go, but it didn't just taste like garlic.
I wouldn't say I am PRO escargot, I AM pro-frogs legs though.

No no no no the snails do NOT taste like chicken. They taste and feel exactly as you imagine, and are kind of chewy.

Forgot to drink Bordeaux wine! M had beer I had white! whoops
Flickr comments are rad thanks.
C-E is less rad when you walk from the Louvre to the Arc de Triomph.

Bleugh, yours were nicer than mine then!
