Day 5 in Paris was spent doing some serious shopping, but shockingly not all for clothes! As a foodie, I always love checking out local groceries, small shops and bakeries to see what the locals are eating. We began the day at Poilane, one of the most decorated bakeries in France. The breads were beautiful and the store was decorated with sable cookie ornaments. A dream shop!
Next we headed to Le Bon Marche, the oldest department store in the world. The clothes were gorgeous, but we were more interested in the enormous food court. The food court reminded me of Harrod’s. There is beautifully prepared food in cases and the rarest of ingredients throughout the rest of the store. The French take their sugar very seriously. Since they take their espresso so strong, the sugar cuts the bit of the cafe. In the bottom photo here, you can see all the cute sugars the French sell. How cute to serve your company a cup of espresso and a sugar heart?
And we got our first snow of the trip! This Alaskan girl should be used to the snow by now, but it was still exciting!
