Rainy Saturday in Paris

It seems that my younger daughter brought the rain with her when she landed in Paris on Saturday morning! It feels and looks like winter here now, which I love, but isn’t the best for sight-seeing.

The girls and I took a long walk yesterday. We revisited the snow globe so that I could get their impressions of it. Like me, they were kind of “meh”, and agreed that some falling snow or lights would be more festive. The cloudy day did make the reflections interesting.

From there we walked to Ecole Militaire and then over to Rue Cler, which is always good for a photo or two.

Only when it began to rain in earnest did we realize that two of our three umbrellas were broken. We caught the nearest bus home and dried out until it was time to head to the Bastille area for dinner at one of Paris’ few vegetarian restaurants, The Gentle Gourmet.

The restaurant was more upscale than I expected for a vegan-vegetarian place, and very nice. We tried the butternut-mushroom soup for starters, and the mushroom burger and risotto for mains.

I hope you enjoy your Sunday, my friends. Other than for students, it feels like the end of the holidays. How are those New Year’s Resolutions holding up?
