My Favorite Things – Postcards from Paris

Bonjour from the land of croissants, berets and haute cuisine!  I’ve only been here a day, but so far Paris hasn’t disappointed.  Today, after leaving my husband at the Théâtre du Châtelet where the New York City Ballet will be performing for the next three weeks, I meandered over the Pont Neuf winding past the Sorbonne into the Latin Quarter of the city.  My destination was the food vendors along Rue Mouffetard.  Although I passed cheese, chocolate and Gelato shops to die for, a small unassuming creperie called Chez Nicos caught my attention.  I ordered a ham and cheese crepe along with the fixin’s (lettuce, onions and tomato.)  Not only was the chef gracious with my halting French, but he even took my wallet and zipped the change back into it for me so I could concentrate on more important things (like holding the beautiful crepe in my hand!) And how was it? Très délicieux! As you can tell, my attention was also taken with Paris’ lovely balconies… Charming cafes… And beautiful lanterns.
