The best bakery in Angouleme... great for walk up sandwiches and snacks to fortify you while you walk around the town (having seen enough comics, tents etc).
What's this? A flower shop... but no... it's a chocolate shop in Paris where all the candies are lovingly hand-wrapped to look like flowers. Where else but France???
And my all time favorite... this little sign above the lone, large comfy armchair in a Paris BD store. I think I have just enough French to get the gist of it.... which is "this space is reserved for those who don't like BD and are waiting for their friend/family member to finish their shopping". Of course, it may not say that at all.... but I was glad to see it and use the chair while Stuart scouted a large store at the end of a long day.
We have the same sort of chair in our showroom..... Stuart's always hoping I'll move it... but as long as I keep seeing a happy wife/child/friend who is sitting there on a Saturday... waiting while their companion shops.... I figure it's in the right place.
