Window shopping (licking) on the Avenue Montaigne

The French call window shopping “window licking.” Yesterday I spent some time licking windows on the grand Avenue Montaigne. It’s not something I indulge in very often, having walked by windows like these in New York and Florence for years. But, in Paris…it’s something special!

Also on this grand avenue is the Plaza Athenee hotel. Wow, wow, wow! I was attracted to it by the red awnings and then I saw the red geraniums and had to move in for a closer look.

Below, even the menu is grand. You can dine here for merely a few hundred euros per meal.

A little further down the avenue is another hotel and restaurant menu proudly displayed outdoors.
