Early morning outside Fouquet's - Claire 22


Fouquet's has been a Paris icon since way back in 1899 when it opened and it proudly anchors a corner at les Champs-Elysees and avenue Georges V. Laure Ferlita shared some wise thoughts -- Be prepared to spend some money and think of it this way:
 "It is not the drinks you are paying for so much as the location..... If the price of drinks at a cafe seems overwhelming expensive .... stop thinking in American dollars and ... think of it as renting a prime piece of Parisian real estate for an hour! Four bucks then becomes a bargain and the coffee is a bonus!"

Yes, ... when you think of it that way it doesn't seem so outlandish. A difference in perspective can make a world of difference!!
