no one, NO ONE, is in a hurry,
especially your server.
Dinner (one course, that is) takes approximately two to three hours and your server never asks how your food is. Ice doesn't exist - and they don't give you water. Quite strange but a nice change of pace from les Etats-Unis (the US) where everything is rushrusheatfasthurryweneedyourtable. It's relaxing.
This morning we visisted les Galleries de Lafayette & Printemps - the largest department stores around. The window displays are fabulous but of course I didn't have a memory card for my camera. And you aren't allowed to take photos in the mall which includes designers like Coach, Chanel, Marc Jacobs, Tiffany, Petit Bateau, etc - needless to say, I bought nothing.
For lunch, we stopped at a petit cafe where we ordered pasta & a salad to go. Salad Nicoise, miam! And I even had a Coke.. something which is typically outrageous here. Over 3 dollars at restaurants for a bottle containing less than your average can. C'est bizarre.
The afternoon was a trip to Veax le Vicomte:
- Monet museum
- Gourmet Shops for l'huile de truffes & le vin
- Dinner as a Group
- the Tour Eiffel <3
C'est le fin.
