Out second day in Paris consisted of having a great cappuccino accompanied with a chocolate tart at Loustic for breakfast; eating delectable pastries at L’Éclaire de Génie as a snack; and ending our night with a wonderful dinner at Le Bistrot Paul Bert. We also went through several arrondissements which seemed as if I actually walked more today than I ever have in my life!!
One thing I noticed about Parisians is how they like to suck the marrow out of life! They like to lounge around or as what they call it ‘flâneur’ at bars/restaurants. They even often have an apéritif or l’apéro before dinner so the affair usually lasts for hours! As an American, I’m used to the fast-paced lifestyle in which everything is done in a rushed manner. Being able to do what the French does was a great eye-opener for me as it made me realize that we have to slow it down at least once in a while to appreciate the smaller details in life.
