Emily in Paris – the office
Leaving the square we came to the location where Emily ‘worked’ in the Netflix series -‘Emily in Paris.’
Through a Parisian arcade
We were then at an arcade of shops. We all took pictures of the hairdressers working in a salon.
The shops in the arcade were mainly small art galleries until we reached the end and there were two shoe shops selling Laboutins.
These two guys at their shoes off and were probably waiting for their significant others to finish choosing shoes.
This is where we split up after a very busy day. I joined the folks walking back to the 5th.
We crossed over the Seine on Pont Neuf stopping to at the Place Dauphin.
Once off Pont Neuf we followed the Quai until Boulevard Saint-Michel.
Over the road was a flash dance and I missed a great opportunity for pictures. This is one of Cristen’s images from the ‘event’.
My lesson learnt – no matter how foot weary you are stop and take pictures. Cristen from the group posted pictures and I could then see what I’ve missed!
The Brassierie les Patios
Dinner was on Rue Soufflot at The Brassierie les Patios. There I met the first truly grumpy waiter this visit to Paris. I was seated next to the door. This should have been OK but the brasserie was running an event in the next door shop. This meant there was a constant stream of servers going backwards and forwards with either food or dirty crockery.
Perhaps I over ordered as I started with melted cheese followed by a slice of steak with chips plus a mandatory beer.
Finally back at the hotel
Back in the hotel, I backed up my images rather than copy to my laptop I transferred all the raw images off the SD card to my portable drive in one go. Big mistake! The transfer took over 30 minutes.
This is the remember that you copy to the laptop first, and then to the portable drive as the USB dock really slowed the transfers down. I took JPG images off the CF Express card to use for the seven images needed for the review the next day. These were then processed using Microsoft Editor.
The rumoured strike in Paris on the Tuesday was confirmed. I explored options for travel on Tuesday including switching to travelling late on Monday evening. But the options were very limited, instead I went to bed ready for the second day of the workshop.
The last day of the workshop was scheduled to start outside the Pantheon.
