When it is a magnificent tapestry at the Manufacture des Gobelins. A and I saw some gorgeous tapestries at the Gobelin Museum, where you can also take a tour of the workroom (in French, but English brochures are available) to see how the weavings are made. Below is a Miro that was made into a tapestry. Am I allowed to like it more than the original painting?

H and I had a wonderful dinner at Le Pichet (68, Rue Pierre Charron, 75008 Paris Tel : 01 43 59 50 34), with a colleague and his wife. They were lovely, and I'm afraid I concentrated more on the company than the food. It was great, though. I started with thin, thin, thin slices of smoked fish and then moved on to a filet of salmon served on a bed of lentils from Le Puy. We had 2 desserts at the table, a cake like pastry with lots of nuts, beautifully presented and a little chocolate cake garnished with a splendid Cape Gooseberry.
