Japanese Noodles in Paris

Higuma is a tiny Japanese noodle shop in Paris, in the 1st district. It is fantastic for lunch! Don't mind the wait outside - it goes by quickly. Choose one of the menus, with a soup and the 5 gyzo dumplings that come along with it.

Visit the Louis Vuitton House in Paris!!

The old Louis Vuitton family home, or what is now the Louis Vuitton Special Orders Atelier, is so beautiful, and if you are in Paris, you can go to visit it! Anyone can sign up for the "Journees Particuliers", for a special tour through the house and workshops, or I have heard that you can try calling to get a tour at another time of the year if you are with an educational group.

We had a wonderful time with the director of the house, sipping champagne and having a private tour of the property! We visited the workshops, where artisans trained in traditional methods create all the custom orders for the Louis Vuitton brand.  

The interior of the home is so beautiful - colorful, and magnificent in perfectly restored Art Nouveau style. There is a beautiful rose garden outside on the grounds - perfect for relaxing and admiring the beauty of the day!
