The song goes - I love Paris in the spring time -Well it's true. Paris must be the most beautiful city in the world and this week it is at its peak. The leaves are on the tree and you cam walk around with as few clothes on as possible. It was about 17 - 19c today.
I had a lovely day with my son James - we went to Les Invalides and went through the Musee D'Armee. But really we just hung out. We lunched at the brasserie at the Lutece Hotel that was the SS headquarters in the war but has a great seafood bar. I had the Assiette des Fruits de Mers and James had a half chicken baked in mashed potatoes with cream, cheese and garlic. We have solved most of the problems of the world and some real ones of our own -such as how does a creative person hold onto power when contracting with corporate buyers.
After a delightful 2 hour nap and another walk - it was time for dinner. We went down the road to the best Indian restaurant that I have been to. After a light but delicious meal, we are ready for an early start tomorrow. We fly at 11.40 back to a cold and overcast Toronto and then on Friday back to our dogs and snow!
In my next life, I hope to be a wealthy Frenchman - with a huge and healthy liver!
