Wednesday Wanderings: Ice-Skating at the Hôtel de Ville

Last week Susan and I were looking for something to do during the day and we decided to go ice-skating. We found out that every winter the city installs an ice rink outside the the Hôtel de Ville so we put on our thick socks and headed there. And it is cheap. It only costs 5€ to rent skates and it is free if you have your own.

The new face of the Murano - Nouvelle French cuisine

I didn't know the Murano before my dinner there a few weeks back but when I mentioned it to some people they didn't seem to have rave things to say about it. But as the new sous chef is a friend of a friend we promised to try it out and give an honest opinion. I can safely say that I was impressed!

Blame it on Napoleon

rue Castiglioni

Napoleon is and always will be an emblematic figure in French history, architecture and culture. If you've ever been to Paris who have no doubt seen his influence on this city. His vision for Paris can be seen at Place de la Concorde, the Louvre, rue de Rivoli & Pont des Arts. His arms though perhaps not long, certainly reached far across Europe and into North Africa with many successes and a number of memorable failures. He is a fascinating personage who has been caricatured, idolized and detested - the man even has a complex named after him (though this is an informal reference). But who was this man?
