    The restaurant sounds delightful and the flea market would be a fun thing to do. Whenever my mind and heart say yes yes!, my knees and feet tell me no no! Unfortunately, I don’t listen to my feet as much as I should. I’m sorry you’re having electronics problems. Surely the huge Apple store near the Opera can help you with it.

      I got my phone on Les Champs Elysées and that’s probably where I’ll go because I like their set-up and service. Have you ever had that happen?

    Hi Linda
    Best of luck with your technology challenges. The flea market reminds me of the French Netflix series which has been so popular in France called Lupin and so worth watching when you have a rainy day.

    Do you ever take the train from Gare St Lazare to Versailles? We used to love visiting the market there which is a jewel … as well as the Palace of course.

    So enjoying your daily blog and wish we could visit you .

    Much love xxx

      Got a temporary home button installed at no charge! So I am back in business. We’ve never been to the market in Versailles but yes, to the palace. We’re keeping our fingers crossed that we may see you before we have to leave.

    I’m so sorry to hear you are struggling with your IPad, both for you and me. I so look forward to your blog with my morning coffee. Today was fun because you ventured into areas I’m not familiar with. The restaurant sounds delightful and the market very interesting. Hopefully you will be able to repair or replace your IPad very soon.

      Good news! The Apple store just installed a temporary home button which will get me by for now and didn’t cost a penny!

    Linda- Happy Sunday! The heat has finally broken and it’s a cool, rainy day in Huntsville. Ahhhh!

    There’s no place like le Marché aux Puces! It’s exhausting but fascinating. You and Bernie are the true bon vivants!

    So sorry about your home button problem with your iPad. I had the same thing happen to me a few weeks ago and found that with a trade-in on my old one the price was very affordable. Still, having to change devices is a time consuming chore. Meanwhile, we avid Linda Spalla Blog fans will wait patiently and send good wishes for a speedy fix.

    Flea market reminded me a little of Israel. Sure not Paris, huh? But a nice change of pace. Your fish looked heavenly. I really liked the walleye up north. Will be home tomorrow.

    Why did it take me so long to put this together? Your topic is the Doors of Paris. Well Jim Morrison of the Doors (of California) died in and is buried in Paris. If you ever get close to Père Lachaise Cemetery, maybe you’d like to stop by his grave. It could be an interesting addition to your Doors of Paris competition. Could be some interesting folk hanging around. Longs like a nice leisurely day in the Market.

      We love Père Lachaise and will try to go back while we’re him and find his grave…just for you!

    Loved visiting the flea market when we lived in Dreux. In those days … only an hour’s drive away! Certainly an interesting place.
    Thanks Linda. Really love your blogs!
