After our lesson, my sister and I headed to Fauchon (since it's on the way back to the metro station). Fauchon certainly is an institution in Paris, known for their madeleines. We tried a number of different flavors, including some unusual ones like truffle and roquefort (cheese). They also have some beautiful-looking desserts and cakes so we picked up some pastries as well. (Yes, I know we just had lunch 10 minutes ago but we didn't have dessert!)
My sister and walked around quite a bit browsing the stores in this area (I think it's considered St Honore - around Madeleine and Place Vendome), and I noticed that there were a lot of good-looking men walking around. I'm not sure where they came from, but I've walked around a lot of different parts of Paris since I arrived, and so far I've found this area to have the highest concentration of attractive men. While I suppose I can't really rate an entire area, I will definitely have to come back and find a good café to people-watch!
