First stop at patisserie Secco
Outside the sun is shining brightly on New Year's day.
But don't think for a second you can leave the house without a brolly.
Mot of the day - parapluie (umbrella or for rain). Absolutely essential at all times in Paris!
1st day of the month run get your carte navigo filled for 65,10€ (save about 15€). You can take 50 trips in one day on the buses and the metro = no limit.
What to wear in Metro?
Co-ordinate with the vending machines.
Dog of the day seen on the Metro to Saint Sulpice.
Walking round in the rain the streets are empty of sane people on New Year's day. You'll have it to yourself and spot things like this beautiful carousel in front of eglise Saint Sulpice.
Today I'm off to catch an exhibit of the architect who designed many Paris libraries at Cite de l'Architecture.
And try to find this Metro mug spotted in a closed shop window last night.
