Today was a day to take care of the business of settling into France. Jean went to the laundromat with 2 weeks of dirty clothes and I went in search of French telephone sim cards for our phones. Both excursions were successful and we combined for some simple grocery shopping.
Of course I got in some ukulele practice.
This evening we wanted to go to a nearby Chinese restaurant, but they had a line out the door. Therefore, we went to another familiar restaurant in the neighborhood, Bistrot Beyrouth. We have gotten carryout from this place often in past trips. Tonight three of us had a mezza plate for two people and barely finished it. The cold dishes included chick peas, tabouli, eggplant puree, and hummus with pita. Then we feasted on chicken wings, lamb sausages, felafal, and some cheese rolls. The meal ended with a dessert plate of apple, orange and banana slices, dates, rose water flan, and a couple of other items. What a feast and all at a very reasonable price!
Tomorrow we are going to the Musee d’Orsay.
