This is really the final part of "American basics", and is difficult to write, because I can't figure it out! If you would like to read the past articles, they are mainly here:

We are due to return to Europe mid July, when things will become normal - hopefully...!
Apart from Beer, no alcohols are sold in Supermarkets (at least not in this part), but I have noticed that, in general, the neighbouring shop to a Supermarket is often the famous "liquor shop"!which is strange!
I often have the feeling that I'm supposed to be guilty when I enter these places, but I don't! The brown paper bags you carry when you come out are also made or that purpose, I think. Everywhere else it's plastic! I can't imagine what kind of packaging is used when you come out of a sex shop, but one thing is sure - everybody knows where you've been with your paper bag under you arm...!
Well - I don't feel guilty, I just feel diddled when I can't get reasonable/good wine with my meal in reasonable/good restaurants at reasonable/good prices.....everywhere!
A meal without wine, for most French residents is like oversalted.........inedible!
I appreciate and have experienced it myself, years ago, that there is a thing called "the Bible Belt" and in those states, it is problematic.
In modern day America, look at these facts: No booze - in the blues, man........!
Can you imagine any of those fêtes you go out to a Restaurant for in Europe, like Mother's day and - no wine, or very little on the menu?
Somethin' to say? Was zu sagen? Des choses a dire?
