Tuesday 19 January - Crepes bretonnes and old locomotive

We had lunch today at La Bigoudine on rue de Moine across from the Batignolles covered market. Bigoudine is the name of the traditional tall hats worn by the women in Brittany.  They had a lunch special - a crepe sale and a crepe sucre and a bowl of cider.

Crepe sale made with buckwheat flour - with cheese and ham
Crepe sucre with caramel
A visit to Gare Saint-Lazare produced two surprises.
An empty stock train hauled by 817041 only the second one I have seen on this trip
A train with vinyl decoration calling itself "Le Train de l'Impressionisme". I didn't investigate any further because there were plenty of SNCF security people around.
