Good-Bye Duck Breast and Baguettes; Hello Burgers and Wonder Bread

For our last lunch in Paris, we splurged and waited in line for a tiny table at the highly praised Le Comptoir du Relais.  It was worth the wait.  Bill had lamb with cannellini beans and I had roast pork.  When I cut into the small disc of meat, it melted apart. It was served with lentils, and it was one of the best thing I've eaten during this trip.

For dessert we shared a pot of creme au chocolat, a rich mousse type chocolate mixture topped with a little cream.  It was served with a madeleine.

After lunch we took a long walk from the Chapelle Expiatoire to our apartment.  We were surprised to find that we were unfamiliar with this route.  Among the new things we discovered was this statue, "Ste. Catherine," by Julien Lorieux.  These ladies look more flirtatious than saintly to me.

Since we leave tomorrow, and go to the airport before noon, I won't be posting again for this trip. Thanks to everyone who has followed the blog, and special thanks to those who have commented, either here or on Facebook.
