We started the morning off with breakfast at Holybelly. This place served the best poached eggs I’ve ever had in my life! I got hashbrowns, mushrooms, and two poached eggs. I also got plenty of filtered coffee for our sight-seeing day ahead.
After that we headed to see Sacre Coeur and Moulin Rouge.
Along the way we had to stop for more bread.
At Moulin Rouge we filmed a happy birthday for my brother and we probably looked very silly doing it, but it was worth it.
Walking back to our place we saw the Paris Opera House. It is regal in all its naked statues and grand structure. Looking at it, it took me back to the days when wealthy women and men would get dressed up and go to the theater, while during intermissions catching up on the latest city gossip. It’s sad how we rarely get “dressed up” anymore. I find it fun to do!
For dinner, I opted for a very duck-y meal. They may have used half a duck to make my meal in fact. I was served three large slices of fois gras, bread, smoked duck and salad. It was soooo very decadent. I sipped on a “Kir” – a white wine or champagne where you select the sweet syrup that waits for you at the bottom. I got Cassis and white wine.
After dinner we got a bottle of wine to share back at the hotel. The food displays make food look the way it is supposed to; fresh, colorful, ready for you to plunge your teeth into and taste the juice. Do you see how tasty these chestnuts, grapes, figs, and currants look?
