Girls Trip - Day 7, Paris

October 13, 2014  •  1 Comment

We started today with a fantastic coffee and even more fabulous pastry.  We then did a little grocery shopping before we started off to Sacre Coeur.  This is a beautiful basilica on the highest point in Paris.  In the front of the basilica was a small group of Portuguese musicians that had a terrific sound so we sat and listened to them for a while.

We found an out of the way Creperie for lunch and thoroughly enjoyed both our savory and sweet crepes.  And yes, these are very different including the flour that is used.  The creperie was run by an Iranian who wanted to practice his English.  Or that was at least the excuse he used to speak to Shane for a while.  From lunch we walked to Moulin Rouge since we were in that area and we could check it off our list.

Much to Danielle's dismay (much too earlier for her) we headed back to our flat to rest before our dinner with my Canadian friends living in Paris.  Pierre and Suzanne took us to a traditional French dinner in the area of Montorgueil.  They gave us at list of the highlights, areas and things that are their favorite spots in Paris that we should not miss.  Then they walked us to the Passage des Panoramas which is the precursor to malls.  The roofed passageways were created for shopping so that the ladies did not have to walked through the mud while they shopped.  These were also the first place in Paris to have gas lights.

very cool pictures!. I especially love the picture of "passages des panoramas". It is like a French Norman Rockwell scene.
