So this is Paris and there are a lot of quirky moments when something amusing pops into view and ends up on my camera roll. But often they just don’t fit into the themes I am writing about this time. I now have enough of these images to make a little farewell post as Alan and I will be winging back to winter on Saturday. Turn on the sound track to Amelie and read on.
In January, bakeries feature galette du roi, a delish almond and puff pastry dessert which honours the three kings of the Christmas story. A”bean” is tucked in and whoever gets the bean wears the golden crown that comes with the cake. Pictured is the bean, a little ceramic baker. Very cute. If you’re me, you not only get to wear the crown, you also get to call your dentist when you get back, because after biting down on the bean you require a crown of a different kind.
Worth peering at this poor image to see the cavorting doggies on the lawn of the Tuilleries. Used to be NO ONE got on this grass, now they have a dog run. Dogs, sculpture, the Louvre…. heaven. Speaking of which. Around the corner is Heaven. And Heaven is on the Allee des Justes, named for those who helped the Jews during World War II. Some things just make sense.
