Café Allongé

 
The literal translation of café allongé is "elongated coffee"; a café order made by anyone who prefers a softer kick and thus, their espresso watered down a bit. 

For today, café allongé refers to extending our Paris café sitting with one more stop - extending the visit that began at lunch yesterday.  I just wasn't ready to leave yet.  How about you? 

Grab a good book.  Let's find a table near this Woody Allen-looking fellow and enjoy the rest of the day right here.

Ciao,

Kris, café sitting is always 'perfect'...no matter where.

donna, me too...(see above!) thanks for the sweet words...'sanity'! whoa, grasshopper...that's a mighty tall order! ;} you're on your own for that one...but I'm quite pleased to bring you closer to Aix and Paris and that lovely shared dream that is France.

Nice to share a chat at the café with you two today...and a petit bonjour to all the others who stopped in for spell - perhaps to read...perhaps to people-watch. Lovely to see you all.

Ciao,
leslie

ok....i over exaggerate occasionally ; ) you're just PART of my sanity.......see........now that feels better doesn't it!

donna, hah! made me laugh! as one who is occasionally prone to go for dramatic effect, i recognized the style. ;} more than happy to be any part of anything close to sanity...not to mention a day-opener across the pond!

bonne nuit à tous!
