Ladurée - Paris, France
I only had a day in Paris, and not even a whole day at that. I took the Eurostar from London at 6:30 am and arrived in Paris at just about 10:00 am. The train departed Paris at just after 8:00 pm for an 11:30 pm arrival in London.
This meant that I really did not have much time to explore the city, but it was nice to be back in Paris after a 13 year absence. I also missed places that I really was hoping to visit -- pâtisserie Sadaharu Aoki, Pierre Hermé or the original Ladurée located at rue Royale. Instead, on the way back to the train station, I stopped at the Ladurée salon located on the avenue des Champs Elysées.
