Sunday in Paris
I spent most of today working on the SciPy 2009 proceedings with Gael and catching up on sleep and email. For dinner, Gael, Emmanuelle, and I meet Jean-Baptiste Poline at the Denfert-Rochereau station and found a very traditional french wine bar called Au Vin des Rues, which is on rue Boulard just off of rue Daguerre and was open on a Sunday evening. (I had a delicious slow-roasted leg of lamb with potatoes au gratin and rum baba for dessert.) The rue Daguerre has a wonderful pedestrian street market I often seem to visit when I am in Paris. Here is a picture of looking down the rue Daguerre (the street market is closed, of course) toward rue Boulard (you can see JB just right of center with Gael peeking over Emmanuelle's shoulder):
