3rd quick note from Paris, because yes blueVicar, there are chocolate bells EVERYWHERE in Paris!
Chocolate eggs, nougat eggs.
HUGE chocolate eggs a decent size child could stand up in at Godiva's.
Is it a contest who can make the biggest egg?
Chocolate cakes shaped like eggs at La Maison du chocolat.
Eggs hanging like Christmas ornaments in all the windows or with an attached loop so you can hang it in your own window or perhaps around your neck..who knows?!
And a chocolate squirrel with a big yellow bow tied over the entire thing in La Maison's window...
I thought squirrels were a sign of Fall..who knew?
The most interesting chocolate "animals" are in Jean-Paul Hevin's window.
The front 1/2 is a chocolate fish or a bunny.
And the back 1/2 is a hen's tail with a chocolate box separating them filled with colored eggs.
Yeah and bows on EVERYTHING.
They probably put a big yellow bow on the Eiffel Tower next Sunday!
Yes, Merisi, I AM like the Energizer Bunny, running running running.
One way for sure that no one gets fat here is all the steps in the METRO - up & down & up & down
A whole lot of walking goes on.
And a very important to note for your next visit - DO NOT RUN across the street.
It just isn't done!?
Even if the lights have changed on you. Cars do not seem to wish to run you down.
I could be wrong on this, but simply do not run across the street.
And try really hard not to stand in the middle of the sidewalk with your maps flowing all over.
Find a secluded corner if you can.
Well it's time for petit dej', so I gotta run!
Tout a l'heure!
