  2. What a beautiful photo of a crisp sunny Parisian Sunday! I must say thank you for your wonderful blog - I found you via the TA forums (you kindly answered a question I had about cosmetics) and have been having a really good read around on your posts on Paris! Have picked up some fantastic ideas and am so excited about trying out a few of the places you've shown on my up-coming 2 trips. For example with my mum i'm going to try out the tea rooms and souk at the mosque - and with my boyf i'm going to try and see the art squat and eat at the marche des enfant rouges. Oh and for me a visit to l'as du falafel as i adore anything made with the king of all pulses - the chick pea!! Thanks again and keep up the very good work!! Sarah (sarlou82)

    1. Sarah, Yum! I love l'As de Falafal! Thanks for reminding me that I really should do a post about it - if for no other reason than it would be a good excuse to go there again. It sounds as if you've got some interesting things planned for your upcoming visits to Paris. If you like good views and have a bit of time after your visit to the mosque with your mom, try to go to the Arab World Center. After you enter the building and pass security, turn to the right and take the elevator to the top floor (it's free). There's a gorgeous view of Notre Dame and the Seine from the terrace.

      Have a wonderful time in Paris and thanks for commenting!

    2. thank you :) my mum (and me by osmosis) are quite terrified of heights. Actually, we first realised this when going up the Sacre Couer when I was around 12. I was scared more of the spiral staircase than the height of the building actually (so an elevator might be ok) and my mum has recently revealed that she went up to the 1st floor of the eiffel tower......so maybe scrap my previous commend and we might give it a try! (especially if we manage to sup a nice glass of wine somewhere on the way!) Thanks for your further suggestions - will let you know how I get on :) Sarah

    1. Paris just doesn't feel the same without you - I swear that there is a certain "Ellalessness - Je ne sais quoi" about the place. Even though we've never met, it was somehow comforting to know that you weren't too far away in the Marais.

  4. WHen I eventually leave Paris, this is the kind of thing that will make me weep with longing. :)

    1. Not to be cruel...but good! :) This one was intended to pull at the heartstrings. I'll have to find some modern, upbeat French songs and go with something lighter next Sunday!

  5. Is Mitt available for translation? Love Edith Piaf and to watch the photos while she sings is such a pleasure.

    1. By translation, do you mean what's he saying in the ad? Not much, only "Hello, my name is Mitt Romney."

      The photos in the YouTube video gave me a couple of ideas for future pictures. I really like the first one of the Eiffel Tower in between the jets of water. I wonder where they took the picture of the couple in front of the clock at 0:24 in the video.

  7. One of my all time favorite French songs and performances.

    Makes me wish I'd learned to dance properly!

    1. It's never to late to learn how to dance (says another wannabe dancer) - plus, it would be the perfect activity to heat up the cold Boston nights!
