This relates to Critique Gastronomique writing challenge. Why isn't the imparfait used instead of p.c. for we wanted to avoid "les terrasses touristiq

the use of the imparfait implies a more habitual or repeated action in the past. I am not familiar with this writing challenge but I would assume that they were in the habit of doing so during their vacation?
