I took one of my students on a little tour of what I can best describe as “PSCS history” yesterday. She told me that one day she intends to have my job (which, by the way, is a very flattering thing for her to say). So as an end-of-the-year gift, I took her on this tour. It involved showing her some important sites in PSCS history, even those dating back to the school’s founding year, 1994-95. I told her that if she’s going to be school director some day, she’s going to need to know about these places.
Anyway, as the tour wound down we were both hungry and stopped at Crossroads Shopping Center in Bellevue, another of the school’s many former sites. Walking along the outside of the mall, we spotted this bakery, literally, “The French Bakery.” I insisted we go in.
We were greeted by a woman with a French accent who told me she was from Nice (a “nice” place to visit, as you may recall). I was quite taken by her. Even better, the pain aux raisins was by far the best pastry I’ve had since leaving France.
