Valentine's Day Paris Style
Valentine's Day is a much subtler affair here, and until a few days ago it wasn't apparent that the French celebrate it at all. Sweet touches like heart-shaped cheese and special dinner menus are much nicer to look at than plastic chocolate boxes and the garish corporate version of the day that we're all used to. I would have had a few more photos that included chocolate, but once again I was told by a very stern, frustrated shop owner that I was not permitted to take photos. I tried to snap, but I was about 3 seconds away from being chased.
