|a gallery window on Rue des Tournelles|
address for influential courtiers of the 17th century. The interior ironwork of the Synagogue de Rue des Tournelles was designed by Gustave Eiffel. Now I understand the procession of Sephardic Jewish people past my window. I wonder if I can get a peek inside before I leave.
I continued to wend my way through quiet, narrow streets, occasionally stopping to read a plaque or to photograph a window. It's almost Easter, so pink seemed to be everywhere. A Paris visitor with a sweet tooth could be challenged by the window displays at this time of year.
However!! I have just a week left in Paris and and I live across the street from Gérard Mulot. Two years ago, Janet and I took a gourmet food tour and were introduced to some of Paris's most lovely culinary establishments. Our tour guide, Carine Beauvisage (what a lovely name!) was excellent. We took the Gourmet Tour and tasted so many different Parisian delicacies. Consequently, I am obliged to buy a pâtisserie from my neighbour. Which one will it be?
|I chose the Amaryllis because it has some fresh fruit and a pistachio macaron filled with some custard and cake.|
My apartment is between le Café Hugo and a couturier Alexis Paris. Each time that I leave home, I can watch as the designer (Alexis?) drapes tulle or other lovely fabric over a mannequin (not live). Such beautiful confections in that window too!!!
As I will soon be leaving, I now feel a teensy bit of pressure. I am loathe to admit this but I do. I am going to see a play next week A quoi ça sert l'amour? based on the music of Edith Piaf. I don't often go out alone in the evening but I really wanted a couple of French theatrical experiences.
Bon vendredi saint à tous! Je vois vraiment la vie en rose!
