The day before we left for Bordeaux,
Clem and i took a walk through Jardin des Tuilieries –
a former royal garden that’s almost 500 years old
and open to the public since 1667.
In front of the Louvre
It’s a very large park,
and we strolled through it trying to absorb as much of the sun as possible for warmth.
It’s so cold that half the pond has frozen!
Everytime i see something sparkly i magnetize towards it.
Clem says i’m like a magpie.
The Arc de Triomphe
That night we went to Bouillon Chartier
(7 rue du Faubourg Montmarte 75009)
a restaurant Flore goes to regularly for its great and affordable food.
It was packed and we had to queue for 15 minutes, which was better than an hour.
I had museau for my entree, chopped nose of some erm animal.
Tried some of Flore’s escargots which was nicer, but i couldn’t resist ordering something new and exotic.
Wanted to order boudin for my main, but they were out,
so had lamb ribs instead.
Had ile flottante for the first time, which i loved!
Flore apologizes for her schoolgirl-like outfit.
