Thursday 10th August 2017: RKC session and interview with Jerome

There is a wonderful band of synchronicity running through this final Sacre Noir tour and today is really the culmination of old and new connections coming together.
We have been very lucky over the last few years to have gained support from a few online radio stations, this in turn has helped us grow our audience and has opened us up to a whole new audience who many have otherwise never have heard our music.
A few of these online legends have been based on our home-turf (Scotland’s very on Donald Strachan and a very clever Jack Russell who writes for Ralph’s Life blog) and we’re just lucky that these folk have a great online following and are truly dedicated to promoting new and underground music.
From our connection with Ralph’s Life we made friends with others at Radio Kaoss Caribou and the man behind it all (Jerome) came to our show at BDA loved what he saw and invited us out to the RKC studios for a live session and interview – of course we said “yes”.

RKC is a non-profit organization and are fully unsponsored which both Alexis and I really appreciate. It suggests that the DJs and producers of shows are really genuine in their playlist choices; it’s music they love and want to share, not music that they are being paid to promote.

Friday 11th August 2017: Last full day in Paris

We spent our last full day in Paris shopping and eating in the famous side-streets and soaking up the Parisian atmosphere before heading back to the apartment and packing our bags ready for our return to London.

We made a pit-stop at Eric Kayser’s boulangerie on Rue Monge to sample the delights of this world famous baker.
“The Maison Kayser story began at 8 Rue Monge on Friday the 13th, September 1996. It was the natural conclusion of its young founder’s journey. “

I got the classic Lemon Tart and Alexis got a fruit crumble – both were fantastic.

Monday 7th August 2017
We started the day with coffee at Culture Rapide and then made our way to Saint-Cloud for a day away from the cities busy streets.
We got the metro to La Motte-Picquet – Grenelle, an area we’ve visited a couple of time in the past (the Albert Khan Gardens and Parc André Citroën are close by) and walked across the Seine to the small suburb of Saint-Cloud. With Le Château & a vast parkland (classified as a Historic Monument and includes Marie Antoinette’s rose garden) this small area to the west of Paris is a hidden gem.

Saint-Cloud offers a lovely view over Paris as it sits above the Seine and with everyone settling into ‘holiday mode’ the town centre seemed very sleepy and relaxed.
We had a lovely day in the sunshine and enjoyed seeing a different area of Paris.

In the evening we ate at le mezze du chef on Rue Ménilmontoant; a bijou but busy veggie bistro with a few set menu offers and a great range of authentic Turkish treats.
