Vincent and the Luxor obelisk, Place de la Concorde
We've been busy once school started again on November 3. JD had a choir concert, and Vincent has been dragging us all over Paris to see everything he is learning about in school. On Armistice Day, a national holiday in France, we went to see the "Luxor Obelisk" Vincent learned about while studying Egypt. The obelisk was a gift to France from Egypt in 1832 and is covered in hieroglyphics. We had just missed the military parade down the Champs-Elysees. Then we had a nice long meal at a classic old bistro, "Le Grand Colbert".
In between, Alex is obsessed with baking moelleux au chocolat, a "molten chocolate cake that combines the elements of a flourless chocolate cake and a soufflé". Yum.
