French Class Gathering

My French teacher had her end of year gathering at her house this morning. There were nearly 20 of us there. She has a beautiful apartment near the Gare de Lyon, on the 5th floor with wonderful views of the Seine. She is always a generous host. As soon as we enter the apartment Champagne was served (bien sur!) and a tray of goodies. Here is a picture.

After the brunch, my friend and I headed to the Viaduc des Arts, a pretty viaduct with small arts and craft kind of shops. We stopped at Le Bonheur des Dames and bought my French knitting sister some supplies. Then we took the bus to another interesting walking area, the Galerie Vivienne covered passage for a little shopping and ended up at the Jardin du Palais Royal. I don't think I've ever walked around that area. Very nice!
Here is a picture from my walk.

The pastries were good, but they were just the start of a wonderful late breakfast of French goodies. Sorry you all couldn't have been there...but think of all those bad calories you didn't eat :]
