give me france romance

I love bacon and i love what this guy wrote:

In 2005 I went to St. Ouen to hear some Django-style jazz in a (tiny)
cafe. I misread the time by about 6 hours so I spent that time looking
around the markets there. I had a specific ring in mind for my wife
and after 6 hours I actually found it, covered in grime in an
overflowing wooden case in one of the more disorganized stalls. I paid
15 euros for the silver ring (shaped like a small art deco fish), 15
euros for engraving and today it is my wife’s engagement ring!
