Les Hirondelles

I don't speak French at all (although my love of cooking, food writing, food shows, and eating out made deciphering menus in Paris surprisingly easy), so I was much too intimidated to talk to anyone at the antique market, but one woman saw me looking through her collection of postcards and taught me how to say "swallows": hirondelles. I showed her my tattoos, and she helped me find a some beautiful cards, three of which I ended up taking home with me.
