|The Pompidou Centre is similar to North American steam locomotives - they hung all the guts on the ourside.
A quick trip across town to admire St. Sulpice which has been well restored outside.
|St. Sulpice has large windows which let in a lot of light. Much better than most churches of this era.
We then walked along to Le Bon Marche on Sevres which is a large departmental store with lots of staff and few customers. The staff was very pleasant making eye contact and smiling "Bonjour." There is a large epicerie right next door which was filled with interesting things.
We had a snack at a brasserie right outside.
We then went across town to the Madeleine to visit the Apple store. Mary bailed out here and left Pat and me to try to see the window displays on the Boulevard Hausseman. It was very very crowded and very very unpleasant and we got out to the metro as soon as possible.
We set out to go to Le Relais de Venise but it was full so we went round the corner to a low end place. The waiter was very pleasant and the food was good but not exceptional. A man at a table not far off was robbed. He had taken off his jacket and put it over the back of his chair, leaving his wallet in the inside pocket. Someone at the next table took his wallet. That is a good lesson and is why I keep my wallet, cell phone and camera in front zip pockets in my pants.
|I finished the day with chocolate tart and Calvados
