I am in Paris and what would a blog from abroad be without a photo from the window of a local cake shop. Paris is a city resisting globalisation in the high street. While global retail chains are here, they are not here in the numbers I have seen elsewhere, especially in the food areas. Paris is known for its cakes and this shop did not let me down. Now if only we did not let our cultural cringe let us down in the cake shop stakes back home.
