Paris flea, Les Puces Saint-Ouen

Oh WOW, Oh WOW, this is the biggest flea market I have ever seen!
I found out about this place thanks to Jordan's blog Oh Happy Day and her directions have been precious not to get lost in the market just out of the subway... which is NOT the real flea market. The secret is: walk under the underpass! And YES, Les Puces de Saint-Ouen is actually several markets so follow the signs and the crowd.
In my photos, Tombées du Camion @ Marche Vernaison, what a dreamy-creepy place! :)

Paris, looking up...

The Galeries Lafayette, tree-shaded squares, and Montmartre.
Did I tell you I have been to Paris? :) I know, I'm a bit obsessive, but it was such a pleasant change!
If you are planning on some serious shopping, something to keep in mind: to my surprise, the Galeries Lafayette - department stores not to be missed - are closed on Sunday! ... but of course I have managed to stop by on my way to the airport on Monday!

Paris, in layers

Flower shops and sticker art with a view on the Eiffel Tower,
these would make for a lovely Sunday!

Paris, in love

People, seen from the river, are quite descriptive of Paris. Ahhh l'amour, la joie de vivre...
A ferry ride is a must in Paris, if you want to satisfy your voyeuristic urges ;)

Paris, around the table

I am back and ready to share my Parisian adventures!

Top, exceptionally good dinner at Café Constant, near Champ de Mars, an intimate restaurant that serves tasty and well-executed dishes and delicious desserts. Bottom, a classic - moules et frites in Montmartre... OK, maybe not the most quiet and authentic place where you can have dinner in Paris, but we were hungry and it worked out.

Next, people and places...

In August

Are you experiencing empty streets and desert supermarkets? Cities are fascinating in the summer, when locals leave and the urban landscape is silent and still. One of my favorite activities is spying in others' shopping carts! On the top of the list: frozen pizza, beer, ice cream and chips... people tend to turn into children in the summer! :)

How to cheer up a Gemini - 103

A good chat with the sweetest friend, while sampling the most colorful treats, et voilà, the moody side is cured, grumpiness melts away and new perspectives arise! Basically, the secret is not to let your drama queen self take over ;) Please note, only a very good friend will be patient enough to listen to your craziness, so cherish her/him whenever you can!

Ah, and about macaroons, in less than ten days I will be in Paris... très chic!
