It’s been a while since one of these Glimpses posts, so let’s skip the small talk and get cracking, shall we? (The Plane Boy story will have to wait a bit longer…)

Just a small selection of the vegan/vegetarian products found at Canal Bio. Further down the aisle were my beloved Croque Tofous, some Tofinelle tofu sausages, and tofu pate... I did giggle, though, when I saw frozen beef mince abutting vegan ice cream in the freezer cabinet.
The Dalloyau counter at Galeries Lafayette. I only got in a few snaps before being scolded by a No Photos Man. There are far too many No Photos Men in Europe, I think (and before someone else scolds me for a different reason, in my experience they were almost always men).
