Paris Shops and Food

No trip to Paris is ever complete for me without at trip up to Montmartre to Restaurant Durer for their onion soup:-
The best soup a l'onigon!

And then one must have a tarte au citron too!
I now buy my macaroons from the 
Grande Epicerie in St Germain as their 
flavours are not so fancy as Laduree and 
the macaroons are generally nicer but 
they had this "Passion Individuel" cake so 
as I love passion fruit I thought I would try this!

I was not disappointed - the coconut and 
passion fruit worked well together and 
the cake was simply divine!
The new Roger & Gallet shop on the rue 
St Honore is gorgeous and the packaging is 
wonderful - just for soap and shower gels!!  
This was way more fun than buying Hermes!

Chanel's offerings on FSH

Some fab looking shoes in a shoe shop. 

Beautiful clothes in a boutique near my 
hotel.  Tres chic!

The ceiling in the Opera Garnier by Chagall

The fabulous chandelier.

The Corps de Ballet in Onegin - pretty dresses!

Isabella Ciaravola (in brown) with Evan McKie
(in black, guest from Stuttgart Ballet) as 
Tatiana and Onegin - she retired at the 
end of the Onegin run so it was nice 
to see her before she left.

The Champs Elysees by night.

And the statues atop the Grand Palais.

Hope you enjoyed my  Paris travelogue.
