Rosé Marais

Adrian has now a new shop. Muji. He found his perfect mac coat and two new suits. After the shopping bliss we kicked it at the Cafe we always go to after falafels on Rue des Rosiers. Here we had a bottle of rose and people watched for hours. The paris vibe. During our time in Paris we were able to visit Erwan at his design studio, see Karim (and meet his lovely lady Claire) for dinner at his new flat, and visit many a window display. One of the diplays were of paper cut-out scenes from old fashion toilets to little houses. Incredible! to add to the highlight-all-the-time energy of this visit, we ended up feeding birds out of our hands a la Ms. Poppins at the Jardin Luxembourg. wow. so yeah, Paris: Lunches. Dinners (mmmm.. steac Frites @ Cafe du Musee..thanks erwan!). Parisian macarons. Russe nesting dolls. Le Chambre Claire. This bookstore is my favorite photography bookstore in the world. If you are in Paris, you have to go there. You will peruse photo books small and tiny that you have never seen before and wish you had stacked on your shelves. All this = treats for the eyes and for the inspiration file cabinet in the brain. oh wait, did I mention the apricot desert with saffron rice pudding? um. yeah.
