    La fromagerie de Meaux

    There was a thread on cheese in the forum and realise, well cheese I love and my wife comes from Meaux, where the famous Brie de Meaux came out, cheese of king, the king of cheese at the Vienna congress of 1815.

    the fromagerie or cheese shop here is fantastic ,still one of the few really places you can still get the real brie de meaux, the other is the covered market in town, and you go to nearby Joaurre you can visit a real cheesemaker with Brie at its heart

    The nun's follies (hihi, must check): Buy sexy lingerie in a catholic church!

    The lingerie shop and the gothic door
    4 more images

    I do not often write shopping tips, and shopping in general is not a “touristy activity” I praise, but I thought the shop I found here could be of interest, for you ladies. . . . or for you guys, if you want to offer a nice souvenir to your partner, if she does not like cheese, or you live in a country where you may not be allowed to import cheese. . . ;)
    Well, it is a lingerie shop, and I was not inside, but I found interesting that the entrance of this shop is a historical monument, the door of a church; only the door is left, the church has disappeared.
    Here is a side door of a gothic church which has been demolished during the French revolution times. On picture 3 you can see on the side of the door, the sign of the French ministry of culture indicating it is a historical monument.
    Ah! I finally should have gone to visit this shop and suggest the shop owner to specialise in nun lingerie, or priest underwear. . . . ok, ok enough ( harmless ) sarcasms!
    It is very funny to notice that when the shop is closed, there is no sign indicating there is a shop behind this closed door (picture 5)! Should I dare to write it is a “maison close”?. . . . . End of anticlerical writing. . . .

    What to buy: Priest underwear?
    Nun's lingerie?

    What to pay: Fun has no price. . . :)
