A strange phenomenon…

13 Jun

What does one do in Paris on a Sunday when you need something from the grocery store?  Well, nothing – you make do with what you have because you will not find a grocery store open anywhere!  We have become so accustomed to running out for anything any time of the day.  You can even get groceries at 3 a.m. depending on the time of year.  So is not the case in Paris.

AK was wrestling with D and I thought it would be a great time to run out and get a few things only to find that just a few corner cafes were open…luckily, the boulangerie below us was so baguette for dinner it is!
