I never thought I would say this, but I spent Friday night at the carni in Paris.
Granted, it was sandwiched between cocktails at Le Saut de Loup and dinner at Hotel Costes.
And it’s not just any carni, but a carni with une Grande Roué that offers views such as this.
But a carni nonetheless.
The fun with Mel started at the beautiful Le Saut de Loup.
As we were sitting there, the light at sunfall became so beautiful, we had to run over and feel the grass with our toes.
But don’t be fooled. Despite the bare feet and gin and tonics, the night was and summer continues to be cold, cold, cold.
Then it was onto la Grande Roué…
…giddy and dorky, we were.
Going up and up…
… and up.
And just in case you had any doubt that Paris is the most beautiful city in the world…
The fun was over much too quickly. So we took a stroll through the carnival for kicks.
And then tried to regain our dignity with a lovely and light dinner in the courtyard of Hotel Costes.
Anything but a typical night in Paris. And everything about it was fabulous.
