Monday 15 February - Last Day in Paris

 It was bright today but with a very cold wind.  Pat and I went to Buttes Chaumont where people were doing tai chi in heavy winter coats.  Mary and Pat got to the movie they could not get into yesterday.
We had to clear up many items, including wine, that had been accumulating for several weeks.
Our last meal in Paris was at Le P'tit Canon. The owners, Isabel and her husband had a family meal with their two young children and some friends.  They weren't expecting a large crowd on Monday evening, We had a good meal starting with artichoke/anchovies and continuing with turkey breast/gambas/magret de canard.  Dessert was pear tarte with an excellent nut filling.  We drank a bottle of red Bergerac but I also tried a glass of white Corbieres which is renown for its red wines.  It was quite good but rather heavily oaked.  We were given complimentary coupes de champagne with the addition.  We were sorry to say good bye to our friends at this friendly bistrot. 


  1. Your blog is so interesting and your pictures are so vivid that I almost feel like I am travelling along with you.
