In January I accompanied Bert and Wim to a Vladimir Cosma concert at Le Grand Rex. A perfect excuse for a weekend in Paris.
Paris being close to our hometown Antwerp in Belgium, we tend to go for short stays. Also, as I have been in Paris often and will go again, two days is nice enough.
What did we do?
In the evening we had duck – when in France – at La Comète, 19 Rue du Faubourg Montmarte.
The Vladimir Cosma concert was fun and nostalgic. Cosma composed the score for many French film and television productions.
A wet Sunday
It was a wet and windy day. Yet I took a long walk passed the Notre-Dame de Paris cathedral, the Hôtel de Ville city hall and the Bazar de l’Hôtel de Ville (BHV) departement store. It’s situated at the edge of the LGBT friendly Le Marais neighbourhood.
Next to the Centre Pompidou, I had crêpes at Crêperie Beaubourg, 2 Rue Brisemiche.
I decided to walk them of by walking to Gare de l’Est (Paris East) and Gare du Nord (Paris North). My train home awaited.
What do you do when in Paris?
