Subject: Re: Where to wake up/a day in Paris
Hi, Ziners... Well, I've given this a lot of thought :-) I would like to wake up in Paris, open up my French doors and walk out into a garden to find a table set with croissants, fresh fruit, and the au lait. After breakfast, I'd walk to Saint Sulpice and sit awhile by the fountain and then hop a bus to the Musee Rodin. After walking around the garden, looking at the roses, I'd head for the Place de Trocadero and La Carette, where I'd stop for a pain chocolat and some leisurely people watching. I'd spend the afternoon in the Marais, just wandering around the narrow, winding streets, with a stop at L'Occitane for some sweet smelling soap. Later, I'd pick up some wonderful bread, fresh from the oven, from Au Levain du Marais. I'd wander over to Place des Vosges to eat it, feeding the leftovers to the birds. In the evening, I'd head for the Latin Quarter to Brasserie Balzar for a dinner of Roast Chicken and frites. After dinner, I'd take a boat ride on the Seine. Last, I'd stop for a final nightcap at Les Deux Magots before I called it a night. When I went back to my hotel, my bed would be turned down with one perfect piece of dark, rich chocolate on my pillow. Sweet dreams :-)
