Note to Simon

It's not Proustian except that he may have laid eyes on it but something that sticks in my mind from recent time in Paris is an amazing from-the-period Art Nouveau styled restaurant called Restaurant Julian at 16, rue du Faubourg Saint-Denis (nearest Metro: Strasbourg-Saint-Denis).  You don't have to eat there but just step in and look around at this amazing from-the-period place; I've never seen anything like it.  It should be a museum but its a working restaurant.  And of course I had forgotten to bring my camera when the hotel desk clerk sent us there.

  1. George, Thanks, i will in Paris on the 17th, and if I do get to that resturaunt I will take photos and send to you. So far I have seen the Van Gogh museum in Amsterdam, and the many wonderful galleries in Cologne, one had The Friends Rendevous, by Surrealist Max Ernst, and others by Dali. I have had camera jams and battery death, so it has been interesting, but as long as we drink in the atmosphere all is well. Simon
