We finally made it to Deyrolle last weekend.  It is as enchanting a place as I've ever been.  You've probably heard of it, or at least about the terrible fire that nearly ended it all.  Or maybe you've seen the large-scale book of images of the charred aftermath.

Anyway, the shop is good as new... er, old.  It's like a natural history museum where you can actually buy the baby elephant standing in the corner.

Forgive the poor photo quality, this was before I upgraded to my fancy new iPhone.  (Love you, fancy new iPhone.)

I really wanted to bring a foxy home, but the thought of Cochino loving (or hating...) on it was quite a dissuasion.
