Roadworks Steamroller prints put on by the SF Center for Books featured large linoleum cuts made by printmakers, inked up, then run over by a steamroller. The result? Fabulous prints!

We spent several hours at this lovely Medievil museum. They are famous for their unicorn tapestries, but there were many other works of art that were absolutely stunning. The museum itself is a medievil structure and built on the site of Roman baths.

Walked that first day around Rue de Bac and Blvd St Germain, soaking in the aroma of Paris and dodging rain showers. Lots of fashion in this area, including my favorite redhead designer, Rykiel. I was also taken with the chocolatier, Chapon, which had an all-chocolate icecream on display in their front window. I went inside and bought a bar of very dark chocolate by the name of Equateur, which had a hint of jasmine in it. This bar was to sustain H and I during our next three days.
