    Isn’t the coup chou a fun restaurant.? You definitely get the feeling of old Paris. Kudos to Hannah for studying French with such dedication.

    Look at you almost singing in the rain! Your restaurant sounds lovely, a quiet elegance with delightful selections. I love how you and Bernie continue to add to your collection of Paris friends.

    Notice that you’ve been doing a lot of vegetarian dining, Linda! The Portobello looked delicious. Glad you finally got some rain.

      Yes, still having some digestive issues. Switching to smoothies for a while.

    I’ve noticed that you seem to be getting more comments. Could it be because you have only a couple weeks left on your trip and we’re beginning to wonder what we’ll do every morning if we don’t hear from L&B. I hear Paris is beautiful at Christmas. Tks

      Glad you enjoyed having Andrew home. How did the dogs react? Avery sent her beautiful photos of her performance. Always enjoy interaction with both of them. Andrew texted me last evening that Queen Elizabeth had died. Of course, we were already glued to the television, but I was glad that he was aware. I am sad at losing her presence in our world as she was such a force of history. If you haven’t watched “The Crown,” you might enjoy it.

    That looks like a lovely restaurant. I’ve added it to my list for the next time I am in Paris. How wonderful you have made friends in Paris over the years there. That isn’t easy to do. The French are very careful about friendships and inviting “outsiders” to their home – this you already know. I had never heard that a restaurant could be offended if you asked for the Plat Du Jour. I guess they feel it demeans the quality of what they offer, if you think they offer a Plat. One more cultural fact to file in one’s folder of “don’t insult the French by doing this” haha
    Keep enjoying your days there – I love reading your adventures

      We have only two weeks left! But two more soirées in friends’ homes before we go. Yes, those are very special!
