1990 revisited

A couple of weeks ago, my mom & I were reminiscing about our trip to Europe way back in 1990, particularly our encounter with this creepy guy in Grenoble. So I thought I'd share my journal entry from back then...

"We drove straight to Grenoble and had lunch in front of the tourist office (which was closed) and some man (Serge Meunier) was watching us from his apartment and came down to talk to us 'cos he saw from our license plate we had a car from Paris. So, mommy invited herself for tea at his place. This guy was a real weirdo. He totally freaked me out the whole time we were there. I thought he would come out of the kitchen with a carving knife! He's been divorced for 14 years and he had pictures of his ex-wife all over the place. He kept looking me up and down. I tell you, all I wanted to do was to get out of there and quick!"

I'd forgotten the part about his ex-wife...and my mom remembered it as him watching us through a pair of binoculars. Ah, good times!
