Thomas Jefferson was here

Thomas Jefferson was here

On the Champ-Elysées near Séphora and the Marriott. The sign says that Thomas Jefferson, ambassador to France and then President of the United States, used to live on that spot (before the avenue was built, actually). Put up in 1919 by the alumni of the University of Virginia who fought in World War I.

At the farmers' market

This is the best salad stand at the marché, so there is usually a long line of people waiting to buy. The day I took this photo, there were four different colors of carrots.


Musée Galliéra

Musée Galliéra

The Musée Galliéra is the fashion museum. It's surprisingly small in spite of its large exterior. There is a very pleasant garden behind it.
