Its a joy when we descend upon the Swede’s house for our Mah jong session because Hakan has an extensive cellar of top notch wines that he has collected over the time he was in the Swedish diplomatic corp all over the world. So with a lovely summery evening before us we had our aperitif – as is the norm in this part of France we partook in a glass or three of Cremant de Loire – with Karin’s delicious cheesy scones around the swimming pool. Cremant is so so much better than champagne. So much more on the palate – why drink champagne at around 25 euros which to me does not taste of anything particular when for around 8 euros you can have a jolly good Cremant. It does not make sense.
We moved to the lovely manoir and played our Mah Jong in the salon. It seemed after the first two games that the Karinliz team would conquer all but the men turned it around with a win each for the Hakanroy and Lawmansiman teams. The Catharinamaggie team failed to win.
I’ll talk separately about the dinner because of the extremely good wines provided by Hakan. We had four top wines.
