Reading: Crown Jewels of Europe by Prince Michael of Greece
ée with my family to get Le Pain Perdu Tiède Ladurée again because it was that good, only this time I ordered some chantilly cream with it. Instead of hot chocolate, I ordered Le Mélange Spécial Ladurée Thè, which I can't remember much about other than that it was enjoyable enough for my brother and I to finish off the pot of tea.
Since I witnessed The Glory of Water opening party, I decided to go back and check the exhibit after breakfast. The exhibit itself was only there for 10 days and was a collection of Karl Lagerfeld's photographs of various fountains that Fendi had helped pay to restore in Rome. I was able to to grab a booklet with the photos in it along with a sketch from Karl.
For the last two days of my trip, I injured my knee from tromping around in my heels across cobble stone, so I didn't visit as many sites as the previous days. Le Jardin des Plantes was a lovely place to walk around in and one of the stops for the Batobus, so getting there was really easy. Quite a few groups of people were there having picnics or playing soccer there.After exploring the area for awhile, we hopped back onto the Batobus for lunch and headed to Le Marais, which is definitely an area I want to explore more next time I'm in Paris. Before leaving Paris, I wanted to try a Croque Madame and Feria Café offered a tasty option, where fortunately, the yolk was still runny.
My brother knows that I'm a huge fan of the movie, Moulin Rouge, so he purchased tickets ahead of time for our parents and us to go see one of the live shows. Each party was served a bottle of champagne and the show has tons of dancers, animals, and costumes, so I understand where the money from my (very expensive) ticket went. However, I couldn't help but feel a tad disappointed in the show. Moulin Rouge was cheesy and I expected that, but there was nothing that differentiated itself from being a Las Vegas show.
