Yesterday’s research didn’t really take me anywhere. The places I went to were either closed or didn’t have the information I was looking for.
It was research I’d been looking forward to. I mean what’s not to love about doing research at a wine market … and that’s where I was heading … to Bercy.
But apart from the cobblestones and ramps that looked like they might have been used to roll wine barrels down … there was nothing. I mean nothing.
It seemed strange that a thriving wine market had once existed here, but now there was no trace of it.
Determined not to give up, I walked up and down both banks.
I was soon rewarded for my effort.
And beyond that, the Bercy Village, which according to Secrets of Paris blog are a series of rehabilitated wine storehouses.
The village was a fascinating place and I discovered all sorts of gems that I hadn’t noticed at first.
Have you ever had a day’s research turn out better than expected?
I’d love to hear your story.
Happy writing 🙂
