This a quote from the voice of twelve year old French girl in a surprisingly lovely novel called The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery. She finds her family and everything French utterly pretentious and everything Japanese elegant and refined. She was searching for the beauty of life. She loved words... "pity the poor in spirit who knows neither the enchantment nor the beauty of language".
Q-Pot was a gorgeous Japanese store featuring macarons, candy, chocolate and pastry shaped jewellery decked out like a chocolate store. There were a stack of Japanese couples getting married too, everyday from 8am until well into the night there were 3 to 7 weddings per day!
