Paëlla Specialist in Nice

I was invited by friends to go to a restaurant that specializes in Paëlla – not really my favorite dish, but since it is the restaurant’s specialty, I figured why not – On y va!

Oui, it was wonderful – decorated with sausage, chicken, and shrimp – loaded with flavors and a very hearty meal, of course, accompanied by a delicious, and equally hearty, red wine!  (I was too busy tasting it to take a photo – oups!)

Grand marche en plein air!

Last Sunday, my husband said there was a big street fair in a nearby town, in case I wanted to go, but being “Poisson d’avril” (April Fool’s Day), I thought he was joking, not to mention that it was Sunday when most stores are closed. Mais non, three streets were actually barracaded for about 6 blocks, making a giant square communal area. There were pedestrians, street performers, and stands everywhere selling ‘everything but the kitchen sink’!

I browsed and people watched a lot, so I guess, the April Fool’s joke was really on me!
