I woke up in Paris this morning.
I’ve only said that twice before in my life and that’s been decades ago. During those trips to France, I checked off many of the museums, castles and cathedrals. This visit I want to spend more time enjoying the streets and food and taking day trips to the countryside.
Even so, I can’t pass up a morning at the Louvre tomorrow. But the next day is set aside for a street market visit followed by a hands-on cooking class. I picked this class after perusing the Internet and getting the advice of friends.
Come to think of it, my purse is stuffed with notes advising me where to eat, drink and be merry while in the City of Light. I’m looking at one right now that says be sure to try the croissants at Blé Sucre; chocolate at Jean-Charles Rochoux; tea at George Cinq; crepes at Breizh Café; baguettes at Le Boulanger de Monge; and dinner at L’Atelier.
If I can work in 6 meals a day, maybe I can get to all the places on my list. One friend advised that a reasonable lunch could be had by finding a good charcuterie, buying a baguette, and composing a meaty sandwich to eat in a park. I’d never do that in St. Louis, but it sounds like a good idea in Paris.
