Shopping at Claye Souilly , lunch at Meaux!

So again as many demonstrations in Paris especially by the Halles I took the opposite direction to my dear Seine-et-Marne dept 77. If you have read my blog you know the significant of this region of my belle France for me.

I took my new car a VW Tiguan automatic for a test run at the shopping and lunch and family visits in dept 77. So I went to Claye-Souilly and Meaux.

I took the old reliable N3 road to reach Claye-Souilly and the wonderful shopping center there.  !The Les Sentiers de Claye-Souilly anchor by a big Carrafour hypermarket but plenty of other stores too

Many of my favorite stores are there too including Armand Thiery ,Micromania, Darty, Orange, Carrefour, and Jeff de Brugges. OF course, Columbus Cafe, Subway, and Brioche Dorée!

Easy parking at park 5 and easy to find your car afterward! Also, easy on off from the national road N3 . From here after some shopping I continue my trip to Meaux

Now, Meaux is very sentimental as it is the native town of my dear late wife Martine and know the city as my own. Many memories but a must to stop when in the area. I had the great pleasure to eat at the same pizzeria that I ate when came to live in France permanently in 2003, and still with same owners!!

This was at the Pizzeria Villa Roma at Avenue Salvador Allende webpage is here: Pizzeria Villa Roma Meaux


Here had my lunch with an Oriental pizza of merquez etc and a Corona beer with expresso coffee all for 16€ All still very friendly serve and good, with the owner talking with me as told was there first in 2003 when he opened the pizzeria in 2002!


From here I went to see some real estate agencies as would like to have a furnished apartment in the area to continue my work assignment from the current hotel stay at CDG. The company is helping me find the place. In fact, I saw one at Claye-Souilly that is  by a private individual that is very nice hopefully the company I am working would approve!

And been at Meaux, could not escape visiting the mother of my dear late wife Martine but she is sick in the hospital well had a chat with my father in law and one of the sister in law at the house on a village just outside Meaux.

It was time to get back to the temporary home at the hotel by CDG T1 and ready for tomorrow run to Paris hopefully with less demonstrations; will need to avoid them. IF you are planning to visit Paris at least until Dec 5th read the news check the areas that are not good to be by and or ask me ::)

Hope you like my new runs away from my lovely Bretagne, which will be back for the weekend of Nov 22-24 and have a Thanksgiving dinner even if a bit late.

For now, remember, happy travels, good health, and many cheers to all!!!

ps.  update back home over the following weekend was able to upload the photos in jpeg!
