My first meal in Paris this time was actually a sandwich from a boulangerie on the Rue de Charenton -- expertly wrangled as I wandered up from the Bastille Metro station to the hotel. There are so many bakeries that I don't remember the name of that one. But I do remember the sandwich: jambon and crudites (ham w/lettuce and tomato). Nothing fancy, just simply made with really good bread.
I had gone into the bakery for a coffee and a crescent or some other small item to tide me over -- but I simply could not resist the call of le sandwich. And, for goodness sake, I had not yet had enough cheese!

And I do love Parisian bakery sandwiches!
NOTE: My all-time favorite Badoit sparkling water now comes also in "Menthe" as in real mint -- think Mojito without the rum (If you can).
