Whoosh, that flew by, didn't it?

I really love Paris, and had another wonderful adventure, made new friends, ate up and even brought home a little fashion. Fabiola and I played a few songs Dennis and Alex from the Hot Rocks at a rockabilly event in Champeaux, outside of Paris.

We had a few showers and sprinkles now and then, but the weather was exceptional this visit. Not like when we braved the zero degree days a couple of years back. No metro strike either.

I did have a chance to visit Musee Montparnasse, somehow thinking I would see a Modigliani I hadn't seen, but actually they only display rotating exhibits. This one was on Voodoo, Haiti and the French. I tried to find the Musee des Vampyres, but didn't. And I also tried to visit the Musee de Magie & Curiosities located in the Marquis de Sade's former home, but it was closed.

Fantastically enough we did see Espace Dali and it is utterly fantastic. His bronzes were juxtaposed with gold and diamond 'jewelry' miniatures. Absolutely beautiful.

Was fortunate enough to dine at La Cochonaille three times with different groups of people, and of course, had steak au poivre every time. Went to the flower and bird shops on the square of La Cite. A very very nice spot to pick up cute gifts of Paris that aren't in every gift shop. Around each site you'll find dozens of shops...a fun spot for tourist shops and restaurants, instead of walking down the river from the Seine to Place St. Michel...slip down the street between St. Severin and the stores. Wait until you get almost to the end, and turn left instead of right and you'll find La Cochonaille. If you go back several times, I promise the waiters will remember you.
