    A Day to Wander

    September 4, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    This morning we joined with David and Carol to have lunch in a lovely little cafe on the Isle St Louis. We had previously eaten here several times and knew that the Plat de Jour lunches were always excellent. We then had a brisk walk to Angelina's Cafe du The on the Rue de Rivoli. This place is one of the most famous tea rooms in Paris and is known as the place where the rich and famous love to be seen. Ten of us stumbled in, dressed in crumpled clothes and tried to look the part. We all failed miserably, especially Bob.

    The hot chocolate is almost enough to instantly clog every artery and the cakes certainly require a huge amount of determination to devour, however we all did our best to do the place justice. Even after the long walk back to our hotel we still felt bloated, so much so that the thought of dinner was enough to make us almost want to puke. Eventually we found the Monoprix Supermarket and bought a couple of punnets of raspberries. It was just about the perfect ending to another long day.

    Quick - lunch time

    We had lunch at Quick. Sierra had fancy stuffed donut holes. She left them unattended. It was hard not to eat them. I behaved and only took a photo instead.

    Let's Go Shopping!

    November 7, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 48 °F

    After lunch, we did a bit of shopping in the Saint Michel district. There are so many souvenir shops around here. In fact, that seems to be the only sort of businesses in this neighborhood. I guess that Notre Dame brings in so many tourists that the souvenir shops just naturally spring up to take advantage of it. It's very convenient to have all these stores in one place. We can easily do price comparisons and see lots of variety.Read more

    Searching for Scarves

    November 7, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 48 °F

    Kathy really wanted to get some scarves for people back home and, possibly, for herself. The quality, and price, seems to carry from shop to shop so we went to lots of different stores to try finding the best deals. It was fun shopping all over town but after a while they all started to look pretty much the same. The sign for these scarves says that one scarf is 6 Euro or you can get two for 10. Unfortunately, all of the scarves that Kathy liked were "not included" in the sale. Hmmmmmm. That's very misleading and not fair.Read more
