Postcards from Paris: Marc Jacobs, Marc Chagall, champagne & Canal St-Martin

When I visited Paris, I sent “postcards” to the blog so everyone could taste a little bit of my trip.

Day 1: Nous sommes arrivées!

After a long day of travel, we’re toasting our arrival with the finest €3 bottle of rosé we could find across the street from our hotel. À votre santé!

 Day 2: Marc Jacobs & Canal St-Martin

A very successful Thursday spent enjoying the Louis Vuitton-Marc Jacobs retrospective at Musée des Arts Decoratifs after a morning at the gorgeous Canal St-Martin. Marc Jacobs at Musée des arts decoratifs

Day 3: Champagne tasting in Reims

Long day on Friday. Headed out to the champagne country to sample their wares and eat some famous Reims biscuits roses. Mission accomplished. We toured Mumm, where the caves feature a lot of delightful old machinery. Reims GH Mumm champagne

Day 4: Marc Chagall and mint tea

To describe today as jam-packed would do a disservice to jam. I’ve been up and down and all around and finally saw the amazing Marc Chagall ceiling at the Opéra Garnier. Chagall ceiling Paris Opera

To recover from the excitement, I then went over to La Mosquée de Paris for some mint tea at the tea salon. Magnifique!

 Day 5: Last day in Paris

Like every day of the trip, the weather was a mixed bag: rain showers and blazing sun. Still plenty of time for a quick stop at Monsieur Eiffel. À bientôt, chère Paris! 20120422-202805
