You can’t capture Paris in Seattle.

I spent a portion of the weekend uploading the remainder of my pictures from Paris, I’ll likely put the London, Brussels and Marillion pictures (plus bonus air hockey video!) up tonight.

But it made me think dreamily of creating a morning routine for myself that involved stopping at Le Panier in the morning on my way to work for tea and a pastry. I neglected to remember that service at Le Panier is mind-bogglingly slow and that they never have enough staff considering their location in tourist central.

That said, it was lovely to nibble on pain au chocolat while wandering through Pike Place Market this morning just as all the vendors were setting up for the day.

But there goes my dream of only ever eating at Le Panier or Le Pichet.
