L and I made our way over to the Marais quarter of Paris
this past Sunday. We ate lunch in the Jewish Quarter here
at L'as Du Fallafel.
("The Ace" and recommended by Rick Steve's).
The line was backed up through the cobblestone streets
with hungry guests anxiously awaiting their falafel!
The entire area was just packed with people,
music, locals, tourists!
It was a surprise for a Sunday when we were expecting
shops and restaurants to be closed.

They are handing L his huge falafel sandwich.

Close up shot of the delicious sandwich! Yum!

While we were in the area we popped into some shops that were open.
This shop is called Petit Pan and is a wonderful little childrens shop.
They have wonderful fabric for quilts and clothing - amazing
little mobiles made of paper - and cool retro toys.
See the super cool robots below in their store window:

We stopped here for some gelato:

They scoop it out to make it look like a flower!
Almost too cute to eat.....almost.....

And, we made a visit to Relma!!!
The most amazing leather and paper store ever.
L got me some wonderful, beautiful leather:
Check out these colors:

I also found some vibrant new colors in leather cord:
Oh, and of course I found a new cute orange stapler and hole punch!
So, new books should be arriving soon....
