If you read my article about Pic du Midi in my Science Blog, you know that my family and I went and spent one night at the top of Pic du Midi, in one of the rooms used by astronomers when they stay up there, to enjoy the beauty of our Universe from up in the mountain! One year later, I reminisce about this fantastic experience for my family and I.
We had an amazing time, observing Jupiter, Saturn and a binary star, in between naughty clouds and at freezing temperatures, but, we also enjoyed a 1st class dinner, at about 3000 meters high in the sky... Astronomy and Gastronomy all in one!
Beware though! Drinking Champagne at this altitude will have some interesting effects on your body! Oxygen, already rarified, will feel like even more difficult to find in each breath you take, after drinking bubbles! LOL!
"The Pyrenees region is bursting with culinary produce of the most extraordinary flavours. The chef at the Pic du Midi, Marc Berger, selects and prepares these local delights"

I highly recommend this amazing experience!
