Moulin Rouge


During an evening walk last week, I could not avoid taking a photo of the "Moulin Rouge". I don't think it is necessary to make any particular comments around this tourist attraction. Everybody knows about Toulouse-Lautrec and the rest...
One thing I just learned is that "Moulin Rouge" is the biggest champagne buyer in the world - around 350 000 bottles a year. It means more or less 1000 bottles per day. It corresponds obviously to one pro mille of the world production. Personally, my own purchasing corresponds to about 0,00001 pro mille of the world production. I will try to improve.

Oui, mais ta boisson préférée est le champagne, la boisson du vrai pari-got, je n´en ai jamais bu autant de toute ma vie que depuis que je t´ai retrouvé, meme en Allemagne il demandait du champagne c´est un bon ambassadeur francais...
