Yo my peeps! I hope you are all having an enjoyable week, whether you be working, vacationing, or just hanging out. I have been wearing out the soles of my shoes, crossing Paris this way and that while the sun shines. We are almost getting used to this California weather here- I can’t recall the last time I carried an umbrella with me.
Yesterday’s post of sunsets were from Monday night, but before I headed out into the sunset I walked all over the third arrondissement. I don’t remember a whole lot about it, but here are the pictures I took. Enjoy.
I started here- at the ever so glamorous Opera Garnier.
From there it’s all a blur.
Thats all the visual aids I got. I do recall that I bought an amazing Vietnamese sandwich close to the Arts et Metiers metro station and then ate it at a little park on Rue Saint- Martin. If you ever are here and tire of French fare, try some of the wonderful Vietnamese restaurants.
I went home that afternoon and whipped up some Asparagus and Mushroom and Lemon Risotto, which was really good with a salad. I used this recipe from Martha Stewart and added mushrooms.
So clearly I was well fortified for my sunset walk.
By the time I dragged myself back into the apartment that night my Fit Bit was cheering me for having walked almost 10 miles that day. It’s kind of nice to get a pat on the back (or a buzz on the wrist) for a good day of exercise. Funny how you hardly even notice you are walking when everything is so Paris.
Thanks for stopping by and y’all come back now, ya hear?
