Bonjour, Paris (Part Four)

Falafel again for lunch today, my friends! And, once again, no falafel photos. But I assure you, The Man of Science and I went straight from the Centre Pompidou Modern Art Gallery to a falafel shop and had some very tasty sandwiches with greasy fries. Yum. Instead of showing you a picture of that, how about I show you my favourite shot of the day, taken from the very top of the Centre Pompidou:

Oui oui! Tres bien! J'aime ca! Bravo!

Ahem.

Dinner, as I mentioned yesterday, was to be found somewhere along the Champs Elysees. I was a bit wary. But, after a bit of walking and looking, we ended up having a very good meal in a slightly odd restaurant. It was kind of Japanese, but also served things like lobster bisque and risotto. I had edamame and sushi!

Sorry, the lighting was weird so the picture looks not great, but it was very tasty, especially the edamame. The Man of Science had veggie tempura and "autumn vegetable" ravioli that he said wasn't particularly autumnal. But he seemed to enjoy his meal, nonetheless.

The restaurant was dark and shiny and full of pictures of naked ladies. It kind of threw me for a loop when we first arrived.

Ah, those permissive French.

After dinner we had some cognac and then took the Metro to the Eiffel Tower which was having a light show to celebrate its 120th birthday.

It was beautiful but freezing, so we had some more hot wine and then got back on the Metro and came back to our apartment. Now we're having potato chips and Perrier and I don't think I'll be awake for much longer. Bon soir!
