August 3rd Newsletter

A foreign field that is for ever England (1)

What's new

Mrs Doyle might have dismissed it as a load of men kicking a bit of leather round a field, but for those who understand the beautiful game, football can be a matter of life and death. Pity then the poor players of team Monaco who will be kicking their bit of leather around in the current heatwave tomorrow evening. French League 1 season kicks off with the Reds and Whites facing Toulouse in Stade Louis II.

We have an update on the much anticipated Maya Jah (see Jun 29 newsletter), which will soon be serving both Indian and Moroccan cuisine. It's located on avenue Princesse Grace, opposite the Rose des Vents, and the restaurant's marketing team has already occupied a Twitter feed and Facebook page, which reports a 12 September opening date. The posts aren't terribly informative, hinting only at a black marble and "precious" wood decor, and promoting a scented candle with woody top notes, violet-jasmine-cyclamen floral middle notes, and a patchouli base note. That's all very well, but what about the chicken tikka masala and pilau rice?

And finally, if you're taking some time out to relax by the pool in Monaco, what better way to while away the hours than with a good book? Mrs maBoum is working her way through stories that are wholly or partially set in the Principality and she recommends, from shortest to longest: Graham Greene's Loser Takes All, Edith Wharton's The House of Mirth, Daphne du Maurier's Rebecca, and Anthony Burgess's Earthly Powers. Enjoy!
