More North African Food, a Garden, and a Church
We stopped at the Mosque for lunch, which was served in an outside area covered with canvas for a tent-like ambience. This did not prevent the birds from pestering diners. I had lamb tagine and Bill had couscous with a variety of meats. Very good, but not really any better than the similar but less expensive meal we'd had at Marché des Rouges Enfants a couple of weeks ago.
Our plan was to visit the Pantheon but we got distracted into going into St. Steven's church by a passer-by who claimed it was the most beautiful church in Paris. It still has its rood screen, and, according to the passer-by, these have been removed from many gothic churches. It also contains a shrine to St. Genevieve. The passer-by has a point. It is a beautiful church.
The Pantheon will have to wait for another day. Today's baguette won 8th place in the 2012 contest.
