The next day I went with Chloe's mother to do the grocery shopping from the local food market which is open twice a week. On saturdays, Chloe's mother buys fresh baguettes and croissants as well as fish, fruit and vegetables. I was so pleased to have accompanied her as it gave me a chance to absorb myself in the culture - trying samples of various sausages, listening to the aggressive French shouts at each stall and of course mixing with the pungent stench of various cheeses which circled the air.
After a lunch with Chloe's family, we set off for Les Puces flea market. This is predominately filled with furniture; some old, traditional and elegant to pieces which were radically quirky and extremely modern. I promised to myself here that I when I get a house, I will return to Les Puces market and purchase some beautiful furniture to create my home. The market was also full of vintage clothing which was extravagant and beautiful. I bought two vintage post cards of Paris.
