Day 3 with Sarah in Paris

Up and off to explore the Marais and surrounds ...

                                                                       Where to start ?

First stop is the Musee Carnavalet which contains the history of Paris consisting of 600,000 exbibits housed in over 100 rooms of two splendid town houses built in 1548.

 With its pleasing courtyards and gardens, this is an easy museum to orient yourself with the city. It is also free.

                                     The bedroom of Marcel Proust.

 I wanted to revisit the Salle de Bal from the l'hotel de Wendel which was painted in 1925 by Jose Maria Sert. 
This art deco ballroom is stunning and so dramatic.

 The very cool store, L'Eclaireur.

 Imagine stocktake here Braize ?

 Wanted to show Sarah the concept store, Merci, which was buzzing with designers from all over the world who are visiting Paris for the Maison et Objet trade show.

 Time for a healthy lunch ...

 A great display as you enter Merci.

 On to check out Bon Ton, the hip and happening children's store.

 Coffee and cake at the Rose Bakery was fun for arvo tea.

There is so much to see in the the very alive 3rd and 4th arrondissements.

Then it was back to the apartment to freshen up ready for our cooking class at 5.30pm ... I always figure we can rest at home !
