My son told me a funny story that I would like to share about going out to a bar here in Paris.
In the heart of Saint Germain des Prés on the left bank and close to the Latin Quarter, he met with friends to go a bar. The area there is called I believe Christine. They had planned to visit one bar in particular. Upon entering they were told that each drink had an icon of Disney characters.
To order, you must draw on an etch-a-sketch one of the characters. If it is approved by the order taker, you would be served your drink. He was then told that each drink was served in a baby bottle!
He then looked at the bar menu and make his selection. Then he proceeded to draw his character. The waiter came over and approved his drawing. Within minutes he returned with his drink in a baby bottle.
My son said it was so funny to look around the bar to see everyone sucking on baby bottles. He loved this place and had a great time. By the way, the bars stay open until 6:00 AM.
In the early hours of the morning, he took a Vélib’ rental bike home. These bikes are for rent and the racks are placed about three blocks apart, for which there is a small fee. The first half hour is always free. You just take a bike and return it where you like. There are about 20,000 bikes available for rent. It is a great way to see the attractions of Paris and get in some exercise.
I took this photo from the base of La Tour Eiffel. The second is of the horse and buggy ride you can get near the ticket booth for the Eiffel Tower.
An absolute hoot! I laughed out loud at this one.. Fortunately, I have zero drawing skillls, even with an Etch-a-Sketch, so I’d never get servedor I’d live there!
