We started off going to Montmartre in the morning. We had all been here before but I didn't remember it and we thought it would be nice to walk around this area before heading to some other areas. We took the furnicular up to Sacre Coeur and listened to a wonderful harpist playing in the freezing cold! We walked around Montmartre - what a gorgeous village overlooking central Paris!! We sniffed hungrily at the crepe makers, and made our way to the Espace Dali which had some really exciting sculptures and multiple series of his sketches.
After a luxurious lunch at a great tea room right across from the Sacre Coeur, we shopped a little on our way to the metro station and headed towards Galleries Lafayette.
We took some pictures of the beautiful glass ceilings of this shopping mall and then headed to a candy store founded in the 1800's called La Mere de La Maison.
Went home, legs aching, feet practically shut down, and made a huge pasta dinner. I think? Or did we eat 2-course crepes today, I can't recall! What a full and happy day =) Ok, if we DID eat crepes, I had the most amazing chestnut puree dessert crepe EVER. It sort of tasted like Chinese lotus-seed paste, it was spectacular!
