Chocolate here, chocolate there, chocolate, chocolate everywhere.

The crowds were just a little too much.  There were moments when we just stood still, impossible to manoeuvre forward, backward, left or right.  

Despite the crazy prices (one vendor was selling the exact same chocolate I’d purchased from them at a gourmet expo in Versailles the day before at a 30percent mark-up) we still came away tummies full of chocolate, nostrils too!  Bags in hand for a cosy evening on the sofa, hands cupped around a warm brew, breaking off pieces of chocolate with a softness unlike anything found on a supermarket shelf.

Despite the crowds etc, I’ll be making a return next year, just a day or two ahead, and without children.
