This is a guest post from BBK, who is one of the VacuousMinx’s favorite travel companions.
When VM and TheHusband finally arrived on our second day in Paris, we had lunch and then tried to go to the market. But it’s closed on Mondays, so we couldn’t shop. We went back to the local Carrefour and shopped for dinner there. VM and TheH made chicken with garlic, BBK’s mom made couscous salad with lentils and pine nuts and tomatoes, but because BBK doesn’t like couscous, she made him pasta. He also had orange juice and water instead of wine.
Day 2 was Tuesday, when most of the museums in Paris are closed. But the Rodin Museum was open. We took the #69 bus and stood in line (a short one for Paris museums) to enter.
On Day 3 we decided to go to the Hotel de Cluny, which houses the Museum du Moyen Age, or what we tend to call the Tapestry Museum. We saw Roman baths, sculptures, tapestries, and arms of combat.
When we were coming back from the Rodin Museum BBK saw a bridge with many locks. No one else saw them, so he sent a special reporter, AKA TheH, to investigate. He came back with these photos:
On Day 4 the final member of the vacation group, J, was due to arrive, and we went to the fish market while we waited for her plane.
We saw lots of different fish that looked familiar but that we couldn’t identify by name. We bought cabillaud, which turns out to be cod. It made a very nice main course for dinner.
