Simon took me to eat the best gelato ever – they make it in the shape of a flower! Awesome. Also, they cost the equivalent of about £1. For that price I think I would eat it every day if I lived there! Please note that it was definitely ice cream weather.
We also went to the market, which was designed by Gustav Eiffel:
There were a lot of souvenirs upstairs and I bought a few Christmas decorations for my collection. Downstairs were the vegetables and some meat, and quite a lot of paprika stalls!
Seasonal vegetables were very much in evidence.
I bought some paprika and some saffron. Saffron came in quantities from 5 grams to 20 grams, but even 5 grams was more than I’d ever seen before in one place! Anyway, my 5 grams of saffron is apparently worth more than 5 grams of gold.
