Ubuntu Lunch Dec. 26, 2009

After L'Arpege, I found my love for organic vegetables.  After Ubuntu, I started a organic garden and vowed to come back every month.  Here we are the day after Xmas where Ubuntu just open after 3 days of Xmas holidays.   The place is packed with happy couples and family.  What a pleasant place to be during the holiday season.
