    Linda, we love your posts and look forward to experiencing Paris vicariously through you and Bernie, as well as picking up a few recommendations for places and restaurants to visit the next time we are in Paris.

    I understand that Rue Montorgueil is Queen Elizabeth’s favourite street in Paris as there is a particular patisserie she loved to visit in her youth.

    Love to you both xxx

      So good to hear from you. I bet it is Stroh’s or something like that. It’s very old and wonderful.

    Loved your post today. Pictures were lovely and interesting. Having a day to leisurely stroll in areas you enjoy is a bonus day. Good to hear your weather was so nice.

    I have stayed in the 2nd and close to Rue Motorgueil a couple of times. I really like the 2nd Arrondissement. It has a mix of places interesting to we tourists and yet many French live in the area too. I recently read that the area around Rue Sentiner has become interesting for the shops and restaurants that have moved in. I know the cooler weather is much appreciated.

    I’m sure you will be actively looking for an alternative apt area. Maybe Montorgueil will work! Do you think that waiter wanted to put you in the corner cause you’re American?? The nerve!!!!

    Hello Linda,

    You’re daily adventures are the dessert with my morning coffee and I really appreciate them.

    I’m strolling mentally with you and enjoying the view.

    I can’t wait to receive your book.

    Have a nice day.

    I so enjoyed your day on Rue Montegueil. We have stayed once in an apartment near there and it was a fun change as we usually stay on the Keft Bank. I know you have probably done Rue Moufftard on a Sunday morning with the singing and dancing. I love it as well. I am sorry you are not nearer the river as I know you miss it, but you seem to be making the best of things. Thanks for taking the time to blog!

    A charming and wonderful post today! Enjoying every single day with you over morning coffee so thx. Ate the best figs of our life from the Bastille last Oct. Are they in the markets yet? And wondering too how many months the Bilbros are spending in Italy now that they own property there? Did they get Italian citizenship? I’m applying for mine now due to ancestry not residency so curious. No need for lots of info here. Can connect with them later. Enjoy your time together!

      Carol, glad you are enjoying the posts. The figs are here! Delicious.
      Peggy’s email is I’m sure she’d prefer to answer in a less public forum. See you soon.

    Another lovely day spent with you, Linda. The photos are as interesting as ever, and I can feel that you are relaxed! Lovely doors, interesting people, and great scenery, too. You have transported me to a lovely day in Paris. Merci beaucoup! Ann
