Last view of Canada – Pearson airport

First view of Paris – sorry, sideways.

The internet with lunch – croque monsieur with additional bread. MMMMM.

 The communal sink outside the bathrooms at this very old cafe Au Bouquet d’Alesia, where apparently Henry Miller liked to drink in the 30’s. A lovely place with a strong wifi signal.

Specialty – petit fours!

The local fire station.

Best baguette in Paris. Be still my beating heart.

The puces – amazing lace and vintage stuff. I mean, real vintage – many decades old.
