Paris with Brigitte and Flo....


Yesterday, I spent a few hours with two dear friends who live in Paris. (Flo and Brigitte) We met at the Malongo Café near Odéon. I really love this place because it's more like a typical American coffeehouse (kinda like Peets, Coffee Bean, and Pannikan... than the cafés in Paris (which is a totally different concept). In all my travels so far in Europe-- Vienna, Budapest and Dublin all have the type of coffee houses where you can hang out ... more like a "salon du thé") here in France.Brigitte's raspberry coffee soda drink with raspberry syrup, soda water and a shot of expresso! She said it was "refreshing!"



I blurred out people's faces because unless you ask for their permission to take the picture... they can ask to have the picture removed... Privacy laws in France...

My favourite worker at Malongo.



A wide selection of coffee beans for sale.

I've been there! I love that place too. There's a Malongo closer to me in Montparnasse, but it's in a Monoprix store and doesn't have quite the same atmosphere :-))

Cool! Thanks, Leesa :-)) To answer your question in your email, yes, I'm usually available during the day on weekdays if I don't have any assignments. Sometimes it's hard to plan because my schedule is always changing, but we can definitely work something out.
