We spent last Saturday walking around Saint Germain, the Latin Quarter, and the Ile Saint-Louis, visiting our favorite shops but mostly enjoying the streets with their elegant architecture and creative shop windows. We walked about eight miles, fueled by eclairs in unusual flavors and my all-time favorite street food, Nutella crêpes.
