Again my time is limited, but I did promise to post again. As I mentioned in a comment, Berthillon’s is closed today, but we discovered Amorino Gelateria Italiano just down the street and we’ve been told by a couple of locals that it’s even better. We certainly can’t argue! Their amarenada (cherry chocolate) is the best gelato flavor I’ve ever tried–in fact, we broke our own “rule” and went back twice! Tomorrow we’ll try the very famous Berthillon before leaving for London on the chunnel train.
Today we walked all over Paris–Notre Dame, Sainte Chapelle, the Champs Elysees, and a very French lunch in Marais of omelette and red wine. Ah, Paris! We just finished a lovely dinner of cheese fondue, onion soup, two kinds of fish and a nutella crepe for dessert. Now, after our brief time in the internet cafe, we’ll go sample ice cream on our way back to our hotel on the Ile de Saint Louis. We don’t catch the train for London until after noon, so my next installment may be delayed a bit. I’ll attempt tomorrow night.
