Our third day in Paris was cold and grey, so we spent the morning visiting Sacré Cœur Chapel and had lunch at some bistro in the magical Montmartre. This place is absolutely wonderful and full of inspiration, which makes me completely understand why it has been the favourite place of all these poets and artists throughout history... If anyone of you has ever been there, I bet you understand what I mean!
By 3pm, we were tired of being in the cold, so we decided to go to Champs Elysées (again) and have a tea party at Ladurée. We started with croissants and pain au chocolat, followed by an oh-so-French foie gras. We then drank tea (I had the Thé Cheri, i.e. a "delicate blend of black tea, cocoa, caramel and vanilla," according to the menu), accompanied by a delicious raspberry & chocolate tarte, vanilla ice cream and, of course, macrons! Not a bad tea party, was it?
As you might imagine, our tea party was absolutely perfect! Although, the only problem we ate so much, that we had to go back to the streets and have a long walk to help us digest all the food we had eaten! So we decided to walk all the way to Concorde, and then to Place Vendôme (my favourite place for window-shopping in the world!).
At Place Vendôme, we found a collection of antique cars, and they were all beautiful! I'm sure Diego would have loved being there! We took our time to check them out, and then we went back to our hotel.
Gros bisous (every time I think of this, I remember one of my best friends from high school, who used to say this meant "fat kisses" in our French lessons),
