A truly beautiful day in Paris. The sun was out, but not too hot…just lovely. Walked to the Eiffel Tower as I promised Eli I would. Finished up at the fair…even found a few extras. Walked and explored most of the rest of the day. Hoping for one last outing before tomorrows flight…we shall see.
Quick post, many pictures. I took the day for books, food, and a few sights. I started the day at Shakespeare & Co. A lovely young bookwoman from Nova Scotia was nice enough to open the side room for me (apparently generally closed on the weekends). This was especially nice as just before I was going to go, I found a full run of seven Seven. After this, I made my way back the Louvre with alternating stops in bookshops and culinary delights.
The afternoon adventures started with a truly wonderful lunch at Mariage Frères. Every element was good…but the tea infused orange, carrot, and sweet pepper gazpacho has moved the bar shaker which all others will be measured (and, I expect, fall short). I met in the afternoon with client who came from Italy to visit (and send love to CF). And then a lovely evening with Didier and his family. The food, drink, and company could not have been better.
Back to the fair and a bit of ‘other’ shopping tomorrow. I’m going to knock myself out and sleep tonight. [sorry re the lack of captions on the images, I can't seem to make them work on the iPad...they will be updated]
