|Magnets from the Cluny Museum, the Orsay Museum,|
and the area around Arles are on my refrigerator.
|... I'm glad to see my kitchen!|
|On my counter, a bag of sea salt mixed with herbes de provence...|
|... I bought this salt at the market in Arles a week ago.|
Update May 11: We've used the herb-salt on three dishes: inside a roast chicken with a cut up lemon; sprinkled on vegetables before roasting; and as a garnish on an omelet. Very satisfactory!
Here are a few more photos:
|Cheese at the market near our Paris hotel yesterday.|
Really, there's no cheese here that has the savory complexity of French cheese.
By the time it arrives here, it's just been kept too cold for too long, I suspect.

|And one more pastry shop window -- too bad we didn't try these,|
though we did have some pastry later in the day...
|... from this patisserie case we selected two delicious pastries.|
Well, it's good to be home, but I wish we had some markets, pastry shops, restaurants, and cafes like those in Paris.
