Drink at Café de Flore
Because Bettina (a regular visitor to PDP) was arriving in Paris today, Anne Reeves had organized a little gathering with her at Café de Flore. Alas, Bettina never showed up! I suppose I'll meet her later on, at the picnic on Wednesday 13, but in the meantime we enjoyed a nice little drink at the terrace of "Le Flore", as we call it. Le Flore is famous for having been the HQ of many intellectuals after the war. Now it's a little touristy, very expensive (a beer costs 8,50 €!) but that is what is costs to sit where Sartre and Beauvoir sat 50 years ago!
