Paris Diary part 9

Day 11
16°, heavy clouds but no rain.

After work, Lily & I went to an “American” restaurant. There was some discussion about the wisdom of going to a restaurant in Paris that specializes in American food, but it was actually a pretty good meal with very nice homemade cookies.

Lily thought we should go so I could have some familiar food from home. I assumed that it would be nothing like actual American food. The restaurant was supposed to have a New York theme, but all the signs and menus were in French, of course. It looked nothing like a New York restaurant, and nothing like an American restaurant that is supposed to be French.

In the end, there was nothing authentically American about it, but it was a pretty good meal at some very low prices. In Paris, low prices are not all that common.

After dinner, we took a walk around the 5th arrondissement. Despite the chance of rain in the early evening, the sky cleared up and it was a beautifully invigorating night. I can think of worse places to walk at night.

No hate, please. There's enough of that in the world already.
