My wife and I are here celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary with friends as they drop in on us. Four guests to date. Our apartment has excellent appliances and Susan is in her element , what with all the fine ingredients one finds in this city. For our first two days we nibbled on food bought from the store across the street and the green grocerers to the south.
Yesterday we took our guests to Butte de Chaumont and had a passable treat at restaurant by suspension bridge. It was a lovely day in a lovely park!
In the evening we watched the France/English rugby teams battle from Au Dernier Metro. I had a wonderful cassoulet de maison. Others enjoyed the beef and sausages.
