    Box of chocolates

    The shop smells so wonderful, the chocolates are gorgeous...they were even so kind as to let me take photos (which got lost as you know, so the photos are from the box I brought home for the kids)..and best of all the chocolates were extraspecially delicious!!

    What to buy: Lot's of chocolates. Most notably "les paves havraises" and "les Zouzous" of course. This is a cute story...apparently the children of the family Auzou were called the "zouzous" so they created a special chocolate for them, so cute!!

    What to pay: Depends on what you buy, the prices are clearly marked on all packages.

    books and maps

    A big selection of books about sailing and travel. It was also so typical of the openness of the people in Le Havre. I went in and asked the owner what kind of special Le Havre items he had and I was also searching for a travel notebook so we started talking and then as luck would have it another customer (who happened to be a guide) joined in and I got so much good info about the city. Thanks, especially for the tip on the funicular for the best views...

    What to buy: Get yourself some maps and guidebooks and also the very fabulous Moleskine notebook. They come in different editions, I got the original version as used by Hemingway and Chatwin (perhaps my writing skills will improve?)

    What to pay: Depends on what you buy

    I asked for the best patisserie in Le Havre at the hotel desk and this was the address they gave me. The cakes were delicious, especially the chocolate one!

    What to buy: Cakes

    What to pay: Wow, much less expensive than Paris, only 6.10 euros for all for cakes.
