The story of Michel and his glass

living in Franche-Comté, he traveled to Czechoslovakia

When the waiter brought him his whiskey he noticed that the color of the glass was more of a green hue. He called out to her and questioned her on where the glass came from.

He went to the place indicated by the waiter and bought a tea service.
