If you don’t feel like a coffee, drink Chateau de France

Not everybody finds everyday a “Grand Bordeaux” in every cellar, but if and when one encounters a 1990 “Chateau de France” bottle hapazardly, one should not think twice before rushing for good (French, what else ?) cheese, excellent bread, palatable friends (which may not be French, provided they can enjoy a great wine) and a decent corkscrew.

Cheers !

The place to baby in #Paris : Jardin du Luxembourg, where else ?

“Le Luco” is the (usually) well taken care of private garden of the oldest wheelchair French politicians, but this luxury ressort is also most welcoming to baby charriages (and their nannies).

Besides, as bookshops are replaced by junkfood stores, growing up parisien babies like babyfooters in startup incubators, and other millennials yet to learn to read and write, not to mention plaint, can find the playground attractive.

Those who can’t walk in the garden, baby talk in and out the senate, and those who can’t read, twit and shout aloud and around, no, not the senate’s clock, the Sorbonne cafés …
