It's a good thing we always have an alternate plan for the day because we frequently have to use it. First on today's agenda was a falafel lunch in the Marais. Falafel with hummus for me, and with hummus and a selection of salads for Bill.
Plan A was to visit the Balzac Museum, a small house near the Eiffel Tower where he lived and worked for about 7 years. Here's what it looks like from the outside.
When we got there we saw a sign saying the museum was closed until October 14 while a new temporary exhibit is installed. Plan B was to see the door that Fodor's guidebook calls the most ornate door in Paris. It's in a beautiful Art Noveau building designed by Jules Lavirotte.
Today's cheeses: Tome du Jura and Pont Lévêque
Today's baguette: Number 6 in the 2011 contest. It was warm, so we bought two of them. We have only one more to buy to complete the project.
