When Ricky and I arrived in Paris we were not able to get immediate access to our apartment. However there was a nice restaurant next door and so we decided to opt for our first genuine taste of French cuisine.
We were not disappointed. I had the most delicious vegetable tart with salad and Ricky had eggs and bacon. He thought he add ordered omelette but something must have gotten lost in translation. Very nice nevertheless.
The weather was very cold with snow falling outside as we ate. Up on the windowsill a small snowman, part of the Christmas decorations. I thought of my daughter- in- law, Lisa. Snowmen would have to be one of her favourite Christmas decorations
Even after lunch our apartment was not ready but we were able to leave our luggage so set off to wander the street and to soak up the atmosphere as part of our brief stay in Paris.
