May 30th Paris

(Finally completing the blogs for my EU work visit that included some sights on the side! …. only 6 months+ late)

First day in the Paris office post covid today.
But first a quick bite with Nita at a cute cafe near our hotel we had spotted yesterday.

Ordered Pancakes with Ham and Eggs – that was something different and really nice! Great place but have no idea what the name was :(.

Nita’s plan was to roam about today and just explore on foot, next catchup for us was later in the evening for dinner – yet to be decided, we were wanting a nice Indian/spicy variety – my task was to find that from work!
My Uber came soon after, and left Nita to her breakky and coffee.

Ride to the office was just under 25 mins, back at the French office, good to see fellow colleagues after a long break.

Lunch was with Stephane Monnier, my good friend from Operations – he took me to a nice seafood place around the corner. Back at the office there were more meetings and knowledge sharing sessions with legal, marketing and Finance.

Met up with Nita back at the hotel and then we were soon of in our Uber to our dinner place – Khajuraho – apparently a fine dining Indian Restaurant with good reviews.
Had not realised the place was so close to river Seine, got the Uber to drop off a block away – we were and this was a great time to walk along with Seine to the restaurant – live a bit more of Paris !

The restaurant was a nice with a good indoor/outdoor seating, we got a nice seat indoor next to the window.
Interestingly the place was decorated with ….as expected…. the statues that are famous in Khajuraho – Kamasutra ! Loved it, that gave us a variety of topics to discuss…. always fun,

Our waiter was good and provided some great recommendations. Food was simply super duper!! All presented so well and the taste was so so good, this is was much needed spice fix. Unfortunately we did not take more pics of the food – our hands were covered in the sauces and curries, could not be bothered with cleaning them up…. food was just so tasty

Highly recommended – must visit Khajuraho Indian when in Paris.

Next we headed out to Pont Alexandre III bridge, which was a mere 5 min walk away.
It was still some daylight – around 9pm – good time to see the transitioning of darkness and the lights coming on around the place. Ofcourse time for some pics!
