2:46 am
a dish that warms your heart to a girl it was all alone and one of the best places to try an authentic version of this world famous dish is that. the restaurant lies on the outskirts of being nice in burgundy the region where coco found was created. here at frederick mina she and expert on chicken that's us who took over his shoulder. for the devil series with a bit of move course there's a secret but i'm not telling you what it is a no no cooking is all about sherron watkins' and. to prepare a classical co-found you need to dismember an entire chicken. then add chopped onion small carrots garlic and a bunch but first fries some fatty bacon in a roasting pan. the piece of the burj be salted individually and then

2:52 am
mountains of chamonix it was then shipped off to geneva even made its way to the halls of versailles harmony's crystal museum visitors can get an idea of the minerals extracted from month long and its neighboring peaks. stands this is for families that imagine sherman he was a very small simple village people had a simple life and were poor house before that and then they found out without having to climb too high up the mountain that with these rockers tools they could possibly sell them in geneva and make some money and then have a better life. and peace and peace that was made into that pioneering spirit has certainly paid off for sure many tourists now flock to the village to travel with the cable car to reach a height of thirty eight hundred meters above sea level. even with the most modern technology and safety measures in place the ride is not for the faint of heart.
2:53 am
but once at the top of the mystique of month long becomes very clear during visitors can dangle over the mountains in a glass box and on a sunny day you can see from miles into the distance. skiing at this altitude without question parts of the body to the test. i see from old directions so over the years when i've been skiing but have never been up here this is my face this is to the top of the mountain to sherman east my first visit but my husband in one nine hundred sixty six and sixty six he climbed up here so i'm coming out for him really so i can show him the pictures when i go to back to england a moment it is very beautiful because of the high altitude it is quite difficult to breathe up here. but this altitude allows visitors to see all. all the major peaks
