I have to say that I found Paris a LOT cleaner and a lot safer than before....very good news !!! You still have to be aware of course ...specially going to the flea market but we took the subway everywhere and it was so much better than when I use to come to work for Fashion Week.

Late lunch  at Brasserie Wepler place Clichy....not the most touristy spot for lunch or dinner but close to the Marche and walking distance to the Moulin Rouge and Montmartre.... Cafe Louisette won't do it for us ...we need some serious food to warm us up : A "choucroute " please ! Sauerkraut cooked in white wine with all the fixins : ham shank, a slab of bacon, sausages,  potatoes...and some hot french mustard :)DSCN0745 [1280x768].JPG
