The place that I work for moved to new offices last month and so now every morning when I come out of the metro I see this guy:
Yup, it's George Washington conquering Paris!
And here he is again from a different perspective which is interesting because right behind him you will see the Musée Guimet (the Guimet Museum dedicated to Asian art) - link to the English version of the site.
And here's todays lunch: ham and cheese on a baguette, an apple tart, a diet coke, and a little macaroon that cost .60 euro cents (my restaurant tickets are for 8 euros, the lunch cost 7.50, and they don't give change so I had to get the macaron to make up the difference).
Parma ham and comté cheese on a baguette with some lettuce. (the comté link is in English if you are interested in learning more about this delicious cheese.)
An apple tart. I had to take the pictures outside because my new office doesn't get much natural light (and I'm not real happy about that either - if anybody's looking for a PA/assistant/secretary/translator in Paris please drop me a line, but only if I can have a nice bright office with a window and a mutuelle) - when the nice weather comes I will eat outside by the Seine which is right close by too.
A chocolat macaron...
And here is the inside. So, that was an ok lunch (with some culture thrown in - who knew there was a giant statue of Geo Washington right in the heart of Paris). I'm still getting used to this new area, on the down side there are no Asian take out places (hence my foray into Belleville this past weekend - I was really missing my Chinese takeout fix) but on the positive side we have an outdoor market on Wednesdays so maybe I will take some pictures of that soon.
