|Thanks to our lovely room balcony, we had a perfect view of the market from Place Kleber|
And this was our nice room in Le Hotel Kleber. Very nice, cosy, and warm. Perfect for our stay.
here). The next day we went exploring. We had to go see the Cathedral Notre Dame because it had an astronomical clock that still had working parts from the 1500s.
|Very majestic, huh?|
The cathedral is well known for it's rose window. And, you can definitely see why here:
|I love this.|
Afterwards, we were definitely hungry. I happened to write down some places recommended from our guidebook and lo and behold! We found Bistro & Chocolat near the cathedral. It's a little vegetarian/vegan bistro. So cute and the food was fantastic!
We both ordered a hot chocolate. However, we had forgotten that here in France, they give it to you in a bowl. It was good. Not too sweet, just perfect.
Then came the food: vegetable paella and a potato and carrot burger. Can we say scrumptious?
After a wonderful healthy meal, we continued our sight-seeing.

Making our way back to the Cathedral, as there was a nice Christmas market there, we stopped to see a few window displays.
|I think Mr. K is hungry here.|
|No wonder! Look at those yummy kougelhopfs and bredles! (mini bundt cakes and cookies) Miammmmmm!|
We were serenaded by La Famille Patchounharouf et Les Gentils Barbares. A cool street band with a gypsy/jazz/French feel. Or as Mr K put it: crazy French men with crazy instruments. They were good and we bought a CD of theirs! Never saw so many people dance in the streets. It was fun.
