La Tour Eiffel en hiver

Do you know that it takes 
about 60 tons of paint every seven
years to keep the tower looking young?

The tower is actually three shades of brown (often called "milk chocolate")
 with  the darkest at the bottom and the lightest at the top.

Rue Mouffetard - les danseurs

Rue Mouffetard
the dansers

Every Sunday around 11am (no matter the weather)
you can enjoy the music of accordianist Christian Bassoul
and dance and sing along with the locals.  If you do not know the dance
you will led by a regular with experience, and if you do not
know the song, sheet music is passed through the crowd.

You will find all ages and it is always
a favorite Sunday activity of mine.

Tu veux du thé?

You would like tea?

Tomorrow is Valentine's Day and you could
really impress with Nina's tea on this service tray.

Nina's  was founded in 1672 when Pierre Diaz
created "La Distillerie Frères." It was the first company
to distill lavender essential oils in France and became
known for their art of creating fragrances.
