Day Two Morning: Street Markets and a Stroll

Our first real day started on Sunday.  Luckily it was a day of street markets so we could get some food to stock up on, and see what all the French markets had to offer.  They did not disappoint!  This particular market was located 2 blocks from where we were staying, underneath the train tracks.


Everything you could want or imagine was offered….from the more ordinary (albeit VERY colorful) fruits and veggies….

To breads and pastas and cheeses…

To seafood ( and so many types of oysters I lost count!)…

To Spices and prepared foods (it was sooooo good!!)…

To the less ordinary…feet, ears, snout, tongue, hearts, brains….

And if you needed things besides food, they had that too…

After we wandered through the market and dropped off our goods back at the apartment, we all went for a stroll through the Paris streets around our neighborhood.  Cafes and shops abound in Paris.

We came upon this beautiful church (but let’s be honest…there really aren’t any UGLY churches in Paris!!).  It was the first time the girls could really see gargoyles in person!

Street music is awesome in Paris!!  And the street entertainers were great too!
