Shopping, Paris: 18 reviews and 15 photos

Fondest memory: So, in Paris, everyday the Parisians buy a baguette when they go home after work. It's so chic. So I decided to do it too, and be Parisian. And me and my dad enjoyed a nice baguette with beurre (butta). And we were chic. To get a baguette, all you have to do it go to a boulangerie (bakery) and say, 'une baguette, s'il vous plait.' And they will give you one. I think they're about 7 francs (but they're on euros now, argh). But be sure to say 'bonjour' first. Or 'bon soir,' depending on the time of day.
