for the last afternoon in paris, i decided to visit the musée d'orsay which is a famous art gallery for impressionism. upon arrival, i found, to my disappointment, it was closed on mondays. they were even doing a special exhibition on fashion and impressionism, hopefully, i'll visit paris again before the exhibition finishes.
since i had a spare hour, i decided to take a morning stroll by the seine on my way to champs elysées' ladurée shop for some delicious macarons. it was closed for renovations the first time, so i thought i'd take a peek at the new furnishings. i bought two boxes of macarons (mainly for the pretty boxes!!) the classic napoléon vert and a special 150ans box called julie.
my friend who decided to visit the louvre instead of the musée d'orsay decided to meet at jean paul hévin's for one last chocolate and cake before our flight to london. since we were there before lunch and afternoon tea, the cake i wanted was available! a delicious chocolate and raspberry cake and a (less delicious) hot chocolate with raspberry coulis.
