Metlinks OTW : 12.03.10

While the South-West of France, as well as Corsica, have seen a sudden drop in temperatures as well as impressive amounts of snow, Paris is doing ok with normal weather…

(Ok, this is not from Paris but from where I am at the moment: picture taken on Monday morning in Montpellier…)

  • Join in the macaron debate. I’d just like to say that PH and La Durée have never been the sole purveyors of macarons in Paris. A number of bakeries, local or from other chains, sell them as well.
  • Another temporary restaurant? Fancy new eatery in the Palais de Tokyo
  • Free museums in Paris? Here is a helpful list
  • Go on Google to follow the results of Sunday’s elections… Impressive I think.
  • Yves Saint Laurent Rétrospectives exhibition at the Petit Palais started yesterday. Seems like it’s going to have a lot of success, beware of the queues!
  • At the Musée d’Orsay, Crime et châtiments will start next week. Beware that some of the items might hurt visitors’ “sensitivity”…
  • Ok, just one other exhibition: Du Greco à Dalí at the Musée Jacquemart-André
  • I keep meaning to do a series of posts about day trips from Paris… Well, here’s one about Chartres!
  • IKEA furniture in the métro? Is that a joke? Check it out for yourselves
  • More strikes for RER B

    hmmm, i guess it depends on your definition: for me, anything west of marseilles is… west. so montpellier, perpignan etc. are south west :P

    Time to look at a map of France then… ;)

    South West kinda stops at Carcassonne.
    South East… I’ll let people from there decide, but I’d say east of Camargue.
    In between, we just say “Languedoc”

    Oh the restaurant in Palais du Tokyo is not new. It has been there since last August/September if I recall correctly. I tried to get a reservation for October then but didn’t manage to…
