Sunday was a divinely gloriously sunny day here in Paris. We have been very lucky this winter.
Is it winter? It didn't feel that way yesterday. And the bridge was closed to traffic.
The marathon was going on. I could see a stream of tiny brightly colored bodies moving swiftly up the other side.
But I was headed along the quai to the Pixar show at musée Ludique.
There are small paved inlets along the quai. I wonder if in summer Parisians dangle their feet in the Seine?
Dogs were out sans/without collars. People were wearing SUNGLASSES!
The musée is surprisingly modern. Not your typical Parisian museum at all.
Last day for the Pixar expo so long lines.
But you can't move to Paris without paying homage to Darling Remy can you?
I was crazy about Ratatouille. Was it really 2007 when it came out?
Next stop an animal of another kind...
Last day for the Salon de l'Agriculture. I had missed the top floor, 7.3 of world-wide purveyors all begging you to taste. This Portugese ham looked sooo good too.
So much fresh vanilla as if just plucked from the vine.
The fragrance was swoon-worthy.
The Aligot man from Aveyron doing his thing with cheese and garlic.
This I couldn't resist but she served everyone around me and pretended not to see me. Finally she made an extra goopy sample, handed it to me and then giggled. Out of this world even if it did dribble down my front a bit...
At last I've gotten over my obsession with kitchen gadgets.
Just what we all need now. Potatoes filled with carrot inside right?
This is a flattened version of Breton Kouign Amann. It tasted just as buttery and caramelly as ever.
Beautifully colored punch from France's Caribbean sites.
The freshly-made coconut ice cream was irresistible. They were serving it all over the two floors of regional food at the salon. Perfection!
I don't know how I resisted the gorgeous stacks of jambon sandwiches at the salon.
Maybe because back home I've got my own lovely stacks of envelopes to send out to you.
