A week in Paris

It's somehow been three years since we last went to Paris... time flies. We had a very nice flat near the Bastille and did the "go shopping at the open markets and then cook" thing, like we talked about doing last time. Bastille is a great place for this since there are a number of markets within easy walking distance.

Primarily we did a lot of walking around; some highlights:

  1. Heading to the Catacombs to escape the rain on Monday; unfortunately we weren't the only one to have this great idea. After seeing the line (in the rain, of course), we turned right around and got back on the metro.
  2. Taking advantage of the closed streets on Sunday to stroll along the canal. Lots of people out enjoying the sun. 
  3. Lunch at L'As du Falafel
  4. The new/redone pedestrian way along the right bank of the Seine
  5. Brunch with Christina and Thomas
