Happy Thanksgiving! (Gobble gobble)
A picture speaks a thousand words, non? Yes, a kitchen store on Rue de Rennes in Paris.
I started French classes at Alliance Francaise today and for four hours we discussed gossip magazines and the (possible) plastic surgery major French political figures have had. It was amusing to say the least.
Walk, Walk, Walk
After class I walked around Paris for 5.5 hours. And with camera in hand I took more pictures of the Eiffel Tower, Place de la Concorde, and all the historic buildings on the Seine. I never tired of seeing these beautiful places.
I had a couple of highlights today:
First, I went to the jewelry store, Cartier as I had to get my battery changed. I had a really enjoyable conversation with the salesperson. He wasn’t snobby at all and I got to practice my French.
Then, I went to Pierre Herme. Many of you are having (or had) turkey today. I had a dessert. Pourquoi pas?!! Pierre Herme is a patisserie that is renowned for its macarons and pastries. For LUNCH, I decided to have a “tarte infiniment vanille” and saved the Rose and Pistachio macarons for later.
Pierre Herme is famous for its tarte and I cannot describe for you how delicious it was. I sat in the square nearby and slowly ate it, enjoying every bite but I was disappointed in the macarons (Rose and Pistachio). I think it is because they sat in my knapscac for 4 hours. They were a bit soft. I will have to go to a different patisserie to try some other macarons later in the week.
