Hello, Paris

 

 

A quick escape to Paris to see the Anselm Kiefer exhibition at the Rodin Museum. The pleasure of wandering by the Canal Saint Martin, watching the narrowboats go by, the gentle waves on the water turning reflections into impressionist paintings. Loving the vibrant touch of colours added by street art, here and there, or the messages sprayed on the walls, the pavement even, stopping passers-by in their tracks. Smiling at the Eiffel Tower, walking through a few urban oasis – the Villemin park with its grapevine, the Mandarin oriental luxurious garden wrapped around a contemporary sculpture. Indulging in one of Toraya‘s edible poem, sweetly called Peony on Pine Needles, matcha and azuki, Japanese pâtisserie to its very best… and later a canelé surprise at Casse Noisette, the chocolate shell revealing a chocolate cream filling with a heart of passionfruit. Falling in love with the Galerie Vivienne all over again, dancing on its exquisite mosaic floor, clinking a glass of Reuilly 2004 against one of Bandol 2013 at Legrand Fille et Fils, my favourite wine bar in the capital. Watching gentlemen still in their suite, a glass of rosé in hand, play pétanque in the Palais Royal courtyard. Choosing a café for the vibrant colours of its chair, settling down with my laptop and books on the terrace, ordering café crème after café crème, working with some Renaud and Brel songs playing in the background. Sighing happily. Paris-therapy.
