Last Few Days in Paris

We've become very aware that we have just a few more days left in Paris. It feels like we're tying up loose ends, hurrying to visit the places we've missed and returning to a few of the places we particularly like.

Today we went to a wine bar (Tartine) suggested by our son, Michael. I had a charcuterie plate (meats, sausages, pate) and the co-diner had a cheese plate. We both tried wines we hadn't had before and we enjoyed this lunch very much.

From there we walked to the Institute of the Arab World designed by architect Jean Nouvel (see photo). We went up to the rooftop terrace and took a couple of photos, then moved on to the sculpture garden on the Seine. From there we returned to Ile St. Louis for window shopping and gelato. While heading for the Metro, we stopped by Notre Dame yet again and shot a picture of St. Denis holding his head. We plan to go to Place St. Germaine tonight to see if there are any interesting street entertainers.
