Paris in July update
18 July, 2010
I’m in the middle of reading Muriel Barbary’s The Elegance of the Hedgehog which I’m lovin’, lovin’, lovin’. It’s such a cool and beautifully written book and I’m taking my time reading it.
In the meantime, I’ve booked a short trip to the beautiful city at the beginning of August with my parents and thought this book would be useful: 24 Hours Paris by Marsha Moore which I was lucky enough to win from Me And My Big Mouth. Our family’s been in love with Paris since before we were born so we’re pretty au fait with the place, but it doesn’t hurt to find new places to go, right? It’s a pretty nifty guide divided by hour, and believe me, there are tonnes of things to do 24/7.
One place I’ve got my eye on is the Albert Kahn Museum. I saw a documentary about him and his photographers who have amassed a huge collection of autochromes from around the world in the early 20th century. You see long forgotten people and cultures in COLOUR and they are beautiful.
And we’ll be stopping by for a Grand Marnier soufflé at Le Soufflé. Yum.
I’ve been meaning to visit the Catacombs at Denfert-Rochereau for years but I don’t think my parents are gothically inclined…
