Le Weekend en Noir et Blanc


A runner in the Parc des Buttes Chaumont, 
which looked like this before the
far-sighted Baron Haussmann decided that
the people of the newly annexed
19th and 20th arrondissements needed
a beautiful green space.

les mains du captif


These belong to one of Martin Desjardins'
Four Captives (this one is Holland),
who've been in chains since 1715.

Find them in the Cour Marly et Puget,
in the Louvre.

H is for "hands."]

un bon dessert


This is un "merveilleux," my fave dessert
at my fave Paris restaurant.  The
restaurant is Circonstances, and this
concoction of silky crème Chantilly, crunchy
bits of meringue, and sweet/salty caramel
is indeed marvelous.
