Wednesday Postcard: Saratoga Springs, New York

Bonjour! This week’s carte postale is one I picked up during my brief visit to Saratoga Springs, New York:

In 1998, I took a Greyhound bus from Washington, DC to Montréal, Québec, Canada, and on the way, we stopped at Spa City Diner in Saratoga Springs. I enjoyed an after-dinner snack of greasy fries!

The bus driver said it was a small, but affluent town known for horse racing. It brought to mind some lyrics from one of my favorite songs:

“Well, I hear you went up to Saratoga

and your horse naturally won…” 🎶

from “You’re So Vain” by Carly Simon

Until the next Wednesday Postcard, à bientôt!
