sweet thing

The second best hot chocolate in the world exists in Paris at the quaint Cafe Angelina on the rue de Rivoli. (The first is in Prague, so check in with me before you go!) A bowl of whipped cream on the side certainly doesn't hurt. As for macaroons, I hear you can't skip Laduree on a jaunt to Paris... and so we didn't. Our raspberry rose petal macaroon tasted quite as exquisite as it looks. Bon appetit!

Cafe Angelina was one of our favorite spots! Man does that bring back memories :) We spent 10 blissful days in Paris and stayed at Hotel Brighton on Rue du Rivoli with a view of Jardin de Tuilleries. It was heaven :)
