Day deux arrived and I woke up bright and early to head towards Angelina.
I had planned to walk there, but the rain kept pouring out of the grey sky
so I went by metro.
Although Angelina just openend up, there were already quite a few
Parisians enjoying a petit déjeuner.
I ordered Angelina's legendary chocolate l'Africain.
The best way I can describe it is by comparing it to drinking pure melted chocolate.
After I paid 7,20 for a hot chocolate, I took my umbrella with me and walked
through the Jardin des Tuileries.
Walking next to the Seine, I decided to pay a visit to my absolute favorite museum
in the whole wide world: Musée d'Orsay.
Unfortunately visitors are prohibited to take pictures, but some of the most
mesmerising impressionistic paintings hang in Musée d'Orsay.
Such as this one:
After slantering through Musée d'Orsay for hours, my rumbling stomach
reminded me it was time to eat.
I walked all the way to Rue Jean Nicot to pick up something sweet from
pâtisserie - boulangerie Secco (formerly boulangerie Poujauran) to find that
it was closed (some shops close in the month of August).
If you remember, I baked Poujaurin's chocolate pound cake and honey madeleines
for Paris Pastry.
At least I saw some gorgeous buildings on my way over there.
I took a metro back to the 2nd arrondissement and bought a pithivier at Maison Collet.
I had my first pithivier in Disneyworld two years ago.
A pithivier is a round, enclosed pie usually made by baking two disks of puff pastry,
with almond paste stuffed in between.
For the evening I had planned on paying a quick visit to the Louvre,
since it stays open late on Friday, but the rain has made way for thunder (!)
so I guess I'm staying inside tonight :).
