A lovely walk in Paris with JOL1KEY2BOL3

Friday, September 09, 2011

Hello dear Sparkfriends!

Yesterday was a fun and busy day! I met Californian Sparkfriend JOL1KE2BOL3, who is currently in France. We spoke French all the time as Jolie's French is really good!




We met near the gates of one of Paris famous gardens, Parc Monceau.




I don't know that part of Paris much, so it was a good opportunity for me to discover it as well! The first part was full of interesting houses from the 19th century...




Sometimes looking much older, like this one which looks almost medieval to me!




Some made with mosaics, more or less modern looking...






Although we were definitely in Paris...




We 'travelled' to Sweden (the Swedish Church):




... and also to Russia (the Russian Cathedral and a nearby restaurant):






Then it was time for lunch! We went to this place I had heard about... very Parisian!




The restaurant room had beautiful tapestries (on the walls) and paintings (on the ceiling), and the atmosphere was very chic!




It seems a bit extravagant, doesn't it? Actually it is a Museum (Musée Jacquemart-André), and so the prices are very reasonable. The meals are lovely too! See...



(This was a quiche made with ham and spinach.) The dessert wasn't bad either, have a look at Jolie's:




Then we walked back to Parc Monceau and spent a little time looking at the trees, flowers and various constructions...












The ducks...




And the typical carrousel!




And then it was already time to say goodbye... Goodbye Jolie, I will miss you and I hope we'll meet again next time you come to France!
