    That is the best way to spend a day in Paris! Just strolling, eating, people watching, and tippling. So glad you enjoyed it.

      Did you all know the story about Le Petit Musc?

    Hi Linda, Fellow Huntsville folks here. Interesting you mentioned the Bonnie restaurant but you mentioned it was in Le Felicite and it is not, it is in SO/Paris Hotel. We spent 4 nights there last week, just after it’s opening and had several breakfasts in the restaurant Bonnie. The view is outstanding from the fully glassed restaurant on the 15th floor. We also had drinks several nights in the rooftop bar, again with fantastic views especially with a full moon. Our room had wonderful views of the city including the sparkling of the Eiffel Tower. I have pictures of these views if interested.

      Yes, I understand there are two entrances and obviously we went to the wrong one. We’ll try again.

      We went back again today and found the Marche and gardens and sneaked our way into the lobby bar. The bartender couldn’t have been nicer. Had a drink and sat for a while taking in the atmosphere. The whole project is called Le Felicite it seems and the hotel is the SO Hotel.

    You may have covered this, but how is the labor situation over there? I’m sure you’re good at converting euros, but how about weights and liquid measurements?

      The euro and dollar are equal right now…first time ever for us. The other measurements, I’m not so great at but learning to decipher the outside temps in Celsius.

    I am thinking that when you come home that you could just pretend that you are still in Paris and continue the blog. It has been the best way to start my day! Thank you!

    Would you mind extending your trip at least for a month because it’s such a treat to have your blog along with my coffee. You take me back to my favorite city and today you highlighted the restaurant in the Marais that we found probably 4+ years ago. Hopefully I’ll be in Paris shape next year.

    Keep well and thank you.

    We shall all miss the wonderful markets with beautiful fruits and vegetables. Our farmers’ markets cannot compare to these. I agree with Nancy Colin that we would all love it if you would continue your blog upon your return home. It lights up our days immensely!
