Paris in the the Spring

We went to Paris again last weekend, and finally made it ot the Louvre.  It’s the world’s largest museum, with a cracking 1989-era glass-pyramid addition designed by IM Pei.  Mr. Pei also left his mark on Toronto – the same guy who designed Commerce Court West, another building which combines the very new with the very old.

More time was spent this time visiting cooler, hipper, fannypack-free Paris locales.  Highlights include hipster cafe Chez Prune , Les Enfants Rouges market (in city centre with a food focus) and Marche aux Puces de la Porte de Vanves (vintage flea market in an outer borough).
