Rue Mouffetard & Saturday's Lunch

A simple composed salad of tiny pears, bleu cheese, walnuts, honey, olive oil and fleur de sel from the Camargue all procurred at Saturday's rue Mouffetard market. People from all over the world make their way to this colorful, food-vending street. Poissonneries, boulangeries, chocolateries, tea and wine merchants abound. Lucky me....I live on this foodie heaven street. I stumble out of my apartment (I live behind the brown door in the photo below) and that friendly wine seller knows exactly which bottle of Côtes du Rhône to have waiting for me. The fish sellers on the other side of the door put on their daily "show" of exotic seafood displayed so beautifully. Today there were street musicians adding to the ambiance.

An absolute must for all you foodies visiting Paris.

Lingerie as Art

Le Bon Marche's windows celebrating the opening of their new and improved lingerie department. Both Parisians and tourists were totally taken with these fabulously creative scenes. Only in Paris.
