Do not climb on the Eiffel Tower!



Oh la! The weather was hot yesterday, not as hot as predicted though, a mere 38C :) It didn't stop Aimee and I heading to Subiaco to enjoy this years Bonjour Perth French Festival. We purchased some art from from my favourite artiste français Tankateo, ate raclette for brunch and took home delicious pasties from La Petite Cafe & Patisserie on Cambridge Street, I knew I recognized that charming smile from somewhere :) I would have loved to stay for the French bulldog parade but another three hours in the heat was not appealing, apart from that we now had pastries to eat at home 😉 Have a wonderful Sunday, take care and stay safe.. P.s. can any of my French visitors translate the sign on the bench below?

  2. The sentence written on the bench means "You look like a forest in winter". I imagine that it is not the right weather to eat raclette ! It's funny to see all these French signs in your city. Here winter comes slowly. We had a cold sunny day. Enjoy the fresh places you may find.

  4. I will not dare to climb this Eiffel Tower ... but I have already done the real one, and it was very beautiful!
    I pretend I haven't seen all the delicious food! 😉😰

  5. So it means you look like a forest in winter, that's rather interesting. I wonder if there's a poem or song that goes with that saying. It sounds familiar to me.

  6. The heat must have been bad but it looks like the event was worth it!

  7. You just know that the sign's there because some moron went and did it.

  8. I bet the heat stopped a lot of people and dogs from going to the parade, Grace!

  12. Cultural events are always fun to go to. Like you, I would be buying pastries too Grace.

  13. If you've climbed the real one, this one would be a let down or a fall down. Charming smile indeed.

  14. That sounds like so much fun and French pastries to top it off. I can't be too jealous though, I went to the chilies & chocolate festival today and came home with way too many treats.

  15. Oh my, 38 C degrees, that is hot, I like that Eiffeltower!

  16. Ohhh, both sounds wonderful, Grace! Just yesterday I could try a bit of my French (I was a bit shy, haha) - and I bought a bar of French chocolate soap there!
    They came from Bourgonge and luckily spoke German, too!
    We´ll be on our way again, soon as Ingo needs bee-stuff for his Didgeridoo... (from a Braunschweig bee-guy (heck, what is the word?).
    Ohhh, I never had raclette in my life (and I have relatives in Switzerland, arghhh!)! Me, the cheese-lover only knows (and hates) fondue (a nasty new year´s eve tradition in my family´s home)!

    I have to admit. It´s not my "old" French, but my old eyes, I cannot read what´s on the bench, ohhhh... help!
    I´m so old I remember sitting in such a car and clinging to the seat when we turned a corner, though! :-)
    I was 14 and had no fear of height so I really went up the Eiffeltower!

  17. Good thing there is not a sign like that on the one in Paris!

  18. Looks like a great time...the heat not so much.

  19. I missed it! I've climbed the real one, this one would be too small for my size :)
    Nice photos Grace
