Le Bistrot Aux Vins

Close to Place des Vosges this place has a changing wine list with specials every other week. I had a good Turaine and the Margot was as expected fantastic. Posted by Picasa

Is there any point in going at the Beaubourg without also stopping by for a glass at George? I guess not so here is my take on this Parisian must on a very cold, utterly grey and still splendid day. Posted by Picasa

Senegalese diner with friends in Paris

She is a true matron of this house. Keeping a tight hand on staff and customers she made for a memorable host. I for one will gladly be back in this island of Africa with fiery food and authentic atmosphere without any hint of the touristy ethno style I came to hate. We had a most enjoyable night here despite the loud African dance music and the smoky surroundings. The patrons were also part of making the night great as they had a party going on and just watching them dance and drink champagne was enough to make you share the joy and lust for life. Food was something really worth writing home about despite being furiously hot. My friend's sister in law promised that when she comes to Brussels next time she will give us a map of the places worth exploring in the Matonge's African heart. Posted by Picasa

Academic refuge

Sleeping quietly and discretely in the warmth of the library's hallway while students hold a debate in the middle of the strike against the CPE at the Sorbonne. Posted by Picasa
