Paris had quite a surprise snowfall last Wednesday.
Airports closed, highways in grid-lock, unexpected ice skating skills....uh hmmm...
Thankfully, we were still able to get out and about -
one of the perks of living in the city.
The 'market street' (as I call it) right around the corner was a bit empty,
but the (slushy) snow still managed to glisten under the sheet of lights and garlands.
This little stretch offers everything you need - boulangerie, cafés, fromagier, caviar shop, gourmet coffee and tea shop and even....brace yourself...a Mc Donald's...sad but true.
France has whole heartedly embraced the Golden Arches - at least it is tucked into the building like the rest of the shops.
Sorry no photos, I just could not bring myself to do it.
Did I mention Starbucks?
They're really crazy about those Frapuccinos!
My favorite créperie
Notice the powdery snow (major slippery white stuff)...no photo of me nearly getting run over by a car on the way home either...thankfully my Mocha Frapuccino and I made it home safely! The Good Lord was looking after me that day!!
