Â On an absolutely beautiful Saturday morning we headed off to get something for a computer at a (to me) totally boring store which left us near Place d’Aligre, one of my favorite street markets. It is one of the more lively and interesting markets in Paris and one of the first ones I ever visited with Maurice so there are always good memories when I return. Before we set out shopping we stopped for a light lunch at le Baron Bouge, a funky little bar in the neighborhoodÂ which sells wine by the bottle from casks. Lots of fun to visit. No real meals but plates of cheese or chacuterrie-sausage, etc.

Instead of a glass a piece we got a carafe for only 6 euros, a little too much wine for lunch for me but so much fun.
