Au revoir — I’m off to Paris

Crayton and I are escaping for a week to Paris! We scored a great deal on miles back in March. It’ll be our first time there. We’re visiting our good friends Erik and Jesica, who moved to Paris a year ago.

My plan for the week is to walk around a lot, see a few museums and eat as much as I can. I’ve even worked out extra-hard over the past month, so you know I’m going to be hitting up the salted butter and the chocolate croissants.

We return to Mexico City on Sept. 18.

Hasta pronto!

    Have a great time! Oddly enough, when my husband and I were in Paris a few years ago, we met a Mexican woman in a crepe restaurant and a Mexican man a few nights later in a restaurant.

    Thanks Susan! We’ll see how many Mexicans we meet — when we were in India last year, a handful of people came up to me and spoke Spanish, which was interesting.

    Maybe you’ll be blogging about French food when you return!

    I was lucky enough a long time ago to be able to spend about six months in Paris, studying French at the Alliance Francaise. I was staying on the Rue St. Jacque, in the 5th Arrondisment. I used to use the Rue Mouffetard for everything. It’s one of the oldest streets in Paris and a place you won’t want to miss. It has wonderful markets, restaurants and cafes. It’s right in the middle of the 5th Arrondisment, running parallel to the Boulevard St. Michel, near Montparnasse. Have a great trip. You really have to go out of your way to have a bad meal in Paris. You’ll love it.

    Make sure to walk and poke around Le Marais and visit the street-foody-feeling L’As Du Fallafel http://bit.ly/qDextA Mariage Frères & Fauchon have become very touristy, but are still food institutions and worth a visit. Tea & Sweets at the Mosquée de Paris is also kind of a must http://bit.ly/qKP8uE I also loved this soup&sandwich place called Cosi when I lived there, in St Germain http://bit.ly/oosWku Great focaccia bread, great crumble w/crème fraiche. And now I’m gonna stop or I’ll have a foodie breakdown. Enjoy!
