Two restful pictures from a pretty great summer. A nod to the Olympic Games in London from the gardeners in Parc du Bercy and my very favourite place to take a break in the Parc, looking very restful in the summer haze.
Below some photos from our visit to the old Menier Chocolate Factory in Noisiel. The building is now headquarters of Nestlé. Like the model villages attached to chocolate factories in England, a while village grew up around the Menuier factory. The buildings are magnificent and beautifully preserved. The area on the Marne is quiet, tranquil and very pretty after a walk through the park 'à l'anglaise' in Noisiel, not far from the RER. Well worth a visit.
