Disappointment Assuaged and Tour of the Louvre Area

First on today's agenda was to find the exterminator.  He has a delightful window display.  I am no longer disappointed.

I stopped to take a picture of Bad Boys Street for grandson Niepa.

Mexican food in Paris?  It's very trendy right now.  I had two carnitas tacos and one mushroom taco.  The carnitas looked and tasted like ham, but it was good.  Bill had a salad and pinto beans.

St. Roche, the patron saint of plague victims, is always portrayed with a wounded leg and his dog, who brought him sustenance.

We've been to the Louvre in the past, and I'm not a huge fan of classical art, so we didn't visit the museum today.  But here's the inverted pyramid in the shopping area beneath the Louvre.

There's a charming holy water font at St-Germain-l'Auxerrois.

Today's cheeses:  None, but don't worry, we've got plenty left over from previous purchases
Today's baguette:  From the corner bakery and not one of the prize winners.  However, it was warm, so it won the coveted Margaret Westerman prize for baguette of the day.

  1. that window display is gross. they showed that in " ratatouille"
    wonder if that is in all exterminator shops like a barber pole or just that one?
