So here I am, trailing around the town of Vincennes, looking for somewhere to eat. With all good intentions I have brought fruit and yoghurt but I have cycled around the Bois de Vincennes all morning and I am starving.
The Bois de Vincennes was beautiful in a misty damp way. Saturday is a much better day to visit. Less crowds than Sunday.
A cup of tea overlooking the lake.
Ah, here in Vincennes, is a cafe on the corner where all the locals are having lunch. A warm traditional bistro Le Marigny on the corner of rue de Fontenay. I have puy lentils with local sausage, one of my favourite dishes. It tastes wonderful, but maybe that is because I am so hungry.
The forecasted “heavy rain” is just a shower after lunch, but I get a ticket and an audiogide to the Chateaux. Thus place would be marvellous for children to run around. Firing thier imaginations and playing “knights and castles”
On the way back I sat at the front of the driver less metro carriage on line one, again an exciting ride for a child
