a few things I forgot to mention:
There are actual windmills in Montmartre.
The guy at the concert at Châtelet who, right as the conductor took his place for the second encore, shouted out "Chicago!"
The fact that the next day, Le Fumoir's music mix included Tony Bennett singing "Chicago," and on my last night, Jean Julien was playing Sinatra singing you guessed it (Jean Julien confessed that it's his dream to be married in Vegas; this to me is inexplicable, in the same way that French humor is inexplicable).
This incredible Hair by Kenneth holdout at Garnier.
Yet another potentially irresistible set of wheels.
I'm risking my foodie street cred, but I did want to tell you that part of the reason I so loved Eric Kayser's chocolate mini financiers is that they reminded me of chocolate Dunkin' Munchkins.
Our collective crush on Jean Philippe, the waiter at Le Verre Volé.
The Parisian obsession with Obama.
