A Paris Morning

Yesterday we woke up in Paris after arriving on Monday mid-day. We had lunch with our friend, Charles-Henry in a neighborhood bistro, did some shopping, then dinner in a Japanese restaurant a few doors down from C.-H.'s place before hitting the hay.

So, once awake, I grabbed my camera for a quick stroll around the 'hood. It was between 7:30 and 8:00 a.m. and the city was just getting moving. It's still August, so people aren't really back to work or school in great numbers.

Breakfast set up in a local hotel: pains aux raisins and croissants!

Le Moulin de la Vierge (The Virgin's Mill) bakery on Blvd. Garibaldi.

We drove back home after a great lunch in a couscous restaurant in the 15th. Ken took pictures of the place so I'll leave it to him to describe. It was a fun long weekend, but it's nice to be home! I'll post more photos from the Normandy/Paris trip over the next few days. Word Of The Week will be back next week.
