Paris (Part 2 - Arc de Triomphe, Dior and Macaroons)

Hi all,

Part 2 of the Paris blog. We visited the arc de Triomphe which was quite amazing. The cars were going every which way around it, I was convinced that they were going to crash. Also on my list of things that I wanted to do was to go to Ladurée for tea. They do amazing macaroons there (which I had with Sophie in London) Unfortunately the restaurant was closed :( they were refurbishing it (oh well, I will just have to go back again) They still had the shop open selling macaroons and other lovely scrummy things. We got 6 macaroons in a really pretty box (which I have kept). We munched through them later on.
Walking down the Champs Elysees we came to Avenue Montaigne. Number 30 avenue Montaigne is where Christian Dior had his couture house. This was my pilgrimage spot!!! I was so excited about seeing it as Dior is a hero of mine. Of course I had to have my picture taken outside it. Inside I was like a kid in a sweet shop :)

The famous Ladurée shop/restaurant. Shame it was being refurbished :(
The Ladurée macaroons (from left to right) chocolate, strawberry marshmallow, rose petal, lemon, coffee, vanilla
