Latin Quarter, Paris

You can't visit Paris without having crepes. I usually think of nutella, speculoos and fruit . . . first we had crepes made with the stuff you normally associate with an omelette: cheese, eggs, mushrooms and ham. They were awesome (Tiffany is inspired to expand her repetoir and replicate them). It's hard to beat sugar & butter on a crepe, but the apple crepes were also superb. Who knew you could get so full on a crepe? Below the creperie was a tiny toilette with a curved ceiling and walls made from porous yellow Parisian stone. Very cool.

The Latin Quarter is in the 6th arrondissement and it never slows down for a minute.  As with all of Paris, it's blighted with graffiti--very sad to me. I have to admit that whoever does it has some talent. I can think of better ways to showcase it though. The bubble guy also had some skills.

PS: that's cherry and blood orange sorbet, and yes it was very very good!
