    I can never tell if my comment goes through. Did you get the one about Les Philosophes?

    Love love my daily visit in Paris! Rereading Prince of Tides since I read it in the 80’s and remember very little. Conroy’s writing is amazing! I think we are alike in that I have to read good writing. Have you read Boys in the Boat? Excellent!

    I had mentioned that an old favorite restaurant of ours was around your new neighborhood I think . It is Les Philosophes. Just wondering if it’s still there and if you’ve seen it or tried it. I used to love their duck.

      I think this is in our old neighborhood, on rue Vieille-du-Temple. Near Le rue des Rosiers. We’ve stopped for a drink but never eaten a meal there. It’s in the 4th arrondissement; we’re in the 3rd or Haut Marais.

    Why did you call them a ‘Typical French couple’? Or were you just rambling on?

      They just looked like a French couple to me, especially with his glasses.

    To me, a perfect day in Paris- exploring the unknown and ending in Marais area.. I hope you find a place in your old haunts next year.

    Yes, I liked his glasses too. If I knew what avant garde meant, I label them as that.

    Oh I want your temps!! Is 8 Days in Paris online? Also, forgive me, what is the deal with the wall that used to be around Paris; I don’t believe you have shown me that. Miss being there!! Y’all should stroll around at night – it’s fun!

      I sent you “8 Days in Paris” in email. All of Paris in its early days was a walled city especially visible in Le Marais. We have strolled around many hours at night through the years, even walked the river at midnight.
