When we reached the Fort about halfway up the mountain we ate some lunch at a cafe. I speak no french - nothing - so I struggled with the menu and with some help I ordered steak tartin with salad and chips and this is what I got.
GROSS! What you see there is like a pound of raw ground up steak. It was really funny to see the chinese guy with us order his meat "80% cooked." The waiter laughed in his face, but he was dead serious. The request made perfect sense to his scientist brain.
After lunch we kept hiking to the top of the mountain and got completely lost trying to come back down the back side. It was awesome.
It was an awesome day and a killer hike, although far longer than we expected it to be when we set out. It was fun to see downtown during the day too. We saw a strike/protest of some sort happening. It wasn't nearly as romantic as Les Miserable had me thinking French protests were. No singing, strange cartoonish signs and about 30 kids with drums and face paint.
