We are at " Carrefour
"; at first sight, it appears to be the same as the one we have in
Spain. There is also a commercial gallery; before we go into the

At the bakery, there are
many different types of bread; they even have a machine which is used

I notice in the fruit
and vegetable section that there are a number of "Bio" products. There
is alsa a lot more variety. At the butchers, there are also many "Bio"

dishes for between 4€ and 6€.
On the way out, I notice
that you can reserve tickets for numerous shows in Paris.
In reality, the "
Carrefour " in France is very different to the " Carrefour " in Spain.
