Paris in July !
Out shopping yesterday on an unusual Sunday when lots of stores were open for the big July sales after a typical French lunch in a brasserie with David's niece and friend...David found an extraordinary leather jacket and 3 pairs of super fantastic art pants - french designed and made in Italy. Guthrie hates shopping but he was a sport, as you can see!
Yet another taxidermy shop full of "animals that died natural deaths" - so says the sign in the window...
Amazing bookshop in the Galerie Vivienne, unfortunately it was closed.
Cross in a little prayer chapel in a big church dedicated to the relics of Saint Therese.
Towards the altar in the little chapel....
I am struck by the intensely cultural and intellectual daily life of the typical Parisian....
Metro poster details:
Palais Royal window - very expensive shop that looks like retro cheap to me!
Harper in the waiting room of the local doctor who saw her right away and diagnosed a serious ear infection and prescribed 3 medicines that I picked up quickly at the nearby pharmacy - all walking and totalling $100 that will be fully reimbursed by the French system because David is a "civil servant".
She already feels better after the ear drops, codeine and antibiotics.....
LE TIGRE (for kathleen hanna)
Meerte chocolate shop:
David in his new red pants (not one of the super hip new pairs but yet another new pair bought the day before) holding the chocolate we chose at Meerte: chocolate noisette et orange = divine!
Old wall detail in Galerie Vivienne:
