Les marchés Flottants du Sud Ouest

Yesterday was the last day of the three-day long Marchés Flottants du Sud Ouest, where vendors from southwestern France set up shop on Quai Montebello (right in front of Notre Dame) to promote and sell their regional goods and spread some warm southern cheer to Parisians making their way into autumn. The weather shifted back and forth between gray and sunny (and drizzly and windy), but the wine, cheese, foie gras, meats, honey, spiced breads, chocolate (and plenty of opportunity for tasting) alongside an extremely lively band to get the crowds going made for a warm and all-around wonderful southern Sunday. (And to top it all off, the day ended with, what else: a rainbow.) Enjoy!


Everything I've tried to write here to describe myself or this blog has given me a complex about trying too hard to sound interesting. Let's pretend I wrote something artsy and cosmopolitan.
