Marche aux Puces / Flea Market
What to do on another cloudy + chilly Sunday when your girl wakes up at 10:30 after sleeping 13 hours and after eating crepes with homemade apricot jam and honey, nutella and orange marmelade, it is already 12noon? Go the flea market! Taxidermy has been a recurring theme this summer....These doll heads were pliable, soft rubber - I should have bought them.
This is not a pretty sign for the BEST ice cream in Paris, just around the corner from our apartment: fleur d'orange; dark chocolate; avocado; cinnamon; white chocolate; pear; apricot; green tea; nut...all with fresh fruit and no preservatives, made by a cool Italian woman, Mary, who speaks in Italian-French-English....

Men's swimsuit at Galeries Lafayette - David almost bought it but we couldn't imagine him in it at the Exchange Pool in Chapel Hill
View of Paris from Galeries Lafayette - don't let the blue sky trick you - it was only blue for 5 minutes!
