We called the 10th arrondissement home and discovered wonderful coffee and Parisian craft beer near “our” Canal Saint-Martin. My family gamely let me lead them from cupcakes and macarons, to falafel, fish & chips, and rhubarb IPAs (all very typically Parisian?). My boyfriend arrived mid-week (chouette!); after happily/dutifully seeing the main attractions we spent the night wandering through Le Marais from one curated cocktail list to the next. We walked a lot and ate a lot–gourmands with tired feet. Bon vivants? A week in Paris was just long enough to feel like it wasn’t; we only just scratched the surface, but it was fantastique. I’ll be back with more soon, until then there’s more French snapshots here…à bientôt!
