The old central market and abattoirs of Paris were demolished in 1971 and moved to Rungis south of Paris. The hideous 70’s structure that replaced the market has aged badly and is in disrepair today. A renewal and improvement plan was formulated in 2004 and work on the project started in 2010.

The French have a special relationship with their dogs. Living in close quarters in Parisienne apartments, dogs rarely leave their person including visits to the bakers, grocers, restaurants and the office. Dogs are forbidden entry to butchers although a hook for leashes is provided outside. Occasionally a doggy trough can be found near to slake the thirst of a short legged friend in a busy street.

Eating at Brasserie Gallopin

One of our favorite places to eat in Paris. http://www.brasseriegallopin.com/

This place has beautiful stained glass inside and a great menu for ~33 euros wine included.  The most amazing aspect is the extremely polite and helpful staff, a rarity in Paris.
