Food ‘n’ France: Day 7

We took an early morning train to Paris, our last stop on the trip of a lifetime. Day seven also marked the death of my last AA batteries, meaning that tomorrow’s post will be tragically void of images.

Cafe de Flore for lunch. It's never too early for bubbly.

Cold chicken with mayo and a side salad (not pictured). After all the snails and cream sauces, I was craving simplicity!

Chocolate Opera, singing not included

Remember that chocolate river in Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory? This hot chocolate tasted like the pre-Augustus-Gloop-entry liquid chocolate in that river. AKA liquid heaven.

Just a quick encounter with Mona

A perfect Parisian day

A perfect Parisian view

Ditto.

Dinner at Le Dome, where I had the most amazing lobster

We went to the Musee Jacquemart Andre first thing (the French equivalent of Biltmore Estate, with more art), followed by lunch and a relaxing afternoon touring around Paris. Sometimes, those kind of days are the best.

I tell you, we are here on Earth to fart around, and don’t let anybody tell you different.
