After trying a couple new pastries for breakfast – chocolate pear croissant and tournad au chocolate (and a couple of our very favorite almond croissants)’ we headed to the Musee d’Orsay for an afternoon of the great Impressionist. I was, once agian, in awe at being able to see such an abundance of fabulous art in one place. What a treat.
Rose is all the rage in the wine stores, so we tried a sparkling rose last night with our cheese and bread and I must say, it wasn’t anything like the pink champagne I drank in college… it was actually good! Good friends, a bit of ratatouille and bottles of red later, and all was fine in Paris! (I’m currently reading, “My Life In France” by Julia Child so feel I must describe the food and drink, however, very un-Julia like, decided to leave out the description of the shopping for (done in an open air market, fromangerie (cheese store) and boulangerie with lots of pointing, smiling, grunting and more than a few mistakes but no discussion about the freshest, best, etc., at least that I understood!) and cooking of the dinner.)
