Paris avec Jen encore un fois

Jen came to visit for 2 weeks again this summer.

the two Canadian Vascilescu brothers live next to the two windmills on montmartre, litterally.  They are in a gated apartment complex and they have access to them but apparently the land lady is crazy and has cameras on everything and yells at people that are too loud or take photos.  We went to visit them, they are the ones that live in the mini museum apartment.

the Paris Brest was invented in 1910 to commemorate the Paris-Brest bicycle race so it's shaped like a wheel.

Saint Chapel is famous for it's stained glass and rightfully so.

my favorite was this tiny window on the side though.
they eventually opened it!

iphone 5 panorama shot warped it but you can at least get an idea of how the whole thing is stained glass.  pretty impressive frenchies.

at the D'Orsay

love this painting "Le Chat Blanc" by Pierre Bonnard

hey mac users did you know that this Apple hardware test exists in your computer?  No?  good, hopefully you'll never have to use it.  I posted on this blog how i had to get my logic board replaced 3 months before this and once i got to paris the computer started restarting randomly making it stressful and hard to work.  This test said everything was fine but it definitely was not because when i finally got back to new york and took it to the apple store they had to replace the logic board again!
Ti-punch is a pretty disgusting drink that is super popular here.  Its rum and cane syrup or sugar and a lime.  
does there need to be a ti-punch maison?  Actually this place near my house in Butte Aux Cailles  "Folie en Tete" is a pretty decent bar and slightly off the main street so i prefer this to all the others.
picked up these labels for 1 euro at the marche aux puces clingancourt up north.
and picked up this real Jean Gabriel Domergue lithograph too!  gotta get it framed.  He claimed to have invented the pin up girl

why wouldn't you ask them what their specialty is when you try a new boulangerie?  This one is on August Blanqui and has a Belle Epoque look to it and this super dense nut and fruit bread is their specialty and was awesome.

I saw this enough times that it is definitely a thing, and what a considerate thing it is.  They put the dimensions of furniture they put out on the street for anyone to take.
a lot of Paris leaves in august so we were 2 of the very few people to watch this viewing of "La Planéte des Singes: L'affrontment" (Dawn of the planet of the apes).  It is a pretty awesome movie on a side note.

Bertillon Salted carmel ice cream still super delish
