Postcards from Paris

9, Fevrier, 2009

I made my way to the Arc de Triomphe this morning to meet a friend for petit-dejeuner, then proceeded to marche back to my flat. This took about 2 hours, breaking my journey for a stroll through the Hotel Crillion and a cafe longue. Aujourd'hui, il pleut beaucoup et tres gris - tres February, mais, still beautiful. I was ready for a good lunch when I returned and there was some lovely provisions in the refrigerator from my shopping on Saturday at la grande epicerie. I enjoyed a composed plate of baby rocket, avocado, ham, tongue with pistachios, cherry tomatoes, fromage and frozen grapes. Dinner this evening consisted of rabbit sausages, braised with fennel, garlic, white wine and cherry tomatoes. Now, it is 9:00 pm and I am meeting a friend for a glass of wine, because that's just what you do in Paris, go out late on a rainy Monday night.
