Weekend Links: Week Six

Weekend Links Week Six view from Pont du Diable

Weekend Links Week Six is coming to you from the South of France, which I must say has been nothing short of amazing. You can read more about my time here in yesterday’s Five Friday Finds from France. This week I’m sharing sixteen articles about France. I have a lot of top contenders this week, but my favorite is about an 86-year-old French woman trying a burger for the first time. If you read nothing else, read that article. Others picks include seven great Paris bakeries (which goes hand-in-hand with the great chocolatine versus pain au chocolat debate) and a Christie’s auction from a 20th century French Riviera château.
