Culture comes around every corner in Paris. Tonight it was The Moulin Rouge, the sex shops and burlesque shows. Every city has them, but Paris is the home of the tease. Although some of the shop fronts are more blatant than teasing. See if you can pick the ‘pink Eiffel Tower’ in one.
People are walking, there is no hawking for business, but then it was only 8pm so it is a little early for the real night life to start up. Found a cobbled ally that looked interesting. It was a bit of a climb up the hill, but the surprise was Square Louise Michel. Another beautiful building with the French people doing what the French people do, relax and enjoy the experience. Tourists mingling with the locals, families with their children, and others just perambulating.
Dinner was superb, the best meal in Paris so far and this is a strong statement. Live music – in French and English. Sat in Bristot Chat Noir and watched the world wander by. This seems to be the French style and I rather like it. The Tagliatelles Carbonara was a delight and the Salmon Lasagne melted in the mouth. The French Merlot was very light, I could drink it all night. A Euro 35 meal plus Euro 15 in tax.
