In less than 48 hours we'll be on our way home and I still have 10 days of reporting to do. I'm never going to be able to give each of those days its due so I'm just going to lay out a bunch of pictures with minimal editorial comment. Enjoy!

Went over to our old nabe to the street market. We like it best because it's human sized.

The great mussels hunt is on! In 2013 we stumbled on a fantastic little rest in the 6eme where we had THE best mussels anywhere, anytime. But where is it? We walked all over the place trying to find it but alas, we couldn't. We retraced our steps as we remembered them from that rainy day when we just came upon the spot with a big sandwich board outside advertising MOULES! So we gave up and headed to a place on rue Jacob where I had my one-and-only steak frites. Very tasty, and that dipping sauce for the frites was nice and spicy.
