Lazy Day but a Great Lunch

Bill wanted to go to Versailles today, but I did not. Just too big and too many tourists - it makes me uncomfortable to be in big crowds like that.

So, he got on the train to Versailles, and I stayed "home" to catch up on my blog and rest my feet.

And, by the way, Bill said that I probably made a good decision. He went thru the palace and said that once you enter, you are stuck - you have to go thru the entire house to get out again. And there were mobs of people.

But, back at the apartment, I decided to go to lunch at a nearby restaurant that I had read about and wanted to try. Glou is located in the 3rd Arr at 101 Rue Vielle du Temple. I had read several reviews of Glou, including this one on Paris by Mouth.


It's a really cute place, with several regular tables for 2 or 4 and a couple of tall communal tables with high stools. I sat at one of those and was joined by several other diners. They have menus in several different languages.

I had my very first glass of French champagne and then Chilled Pea Soup with Mint and Prawn Ceviche. For dessert a chilled Melon Soup. All very unique and tasty. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Once again, I forgot my camera, so no photos.

On the way home I stopped at a rotisserie chicken place close to our apartment to get a chicken for dinner. Kind of expensive, I thought - more than 15 Euro. But, it WAS good!
