Weekend Links: Week 38

This weekend the Journées du Patrimoine (European Heritage Days) are happening and I am beyond excited to be going to Elysée Palace and the Arc de Triomphe to see the Christo installation. I’m also excited just to recharge a bit with Dalton! Some of my favorites from Weekend Links Week 38 include photos of the new Laura Gonzalez designed Saint James Hotel, a list of great restaurants near popular Paris museums, descriptions of the four restaurants in the new Cheval Blanc Paris hotel, and a list of nine common mistakes to avoid in Paris. Enjoy!
