    I always enjoy your food photos. Almost every dish is photographic. Pizza in Paris sounds good! The cemetery was so interesting.

    Much more interesting than I would have every guessed. I had to look up most of the graves that you visited – including Victor Noir. Thank you.

    Wonderful way to spend a day! We love Père La Chaise and find something new every time we are there. I’ve missed a few of your Paris days while we were traveling, but am happy to get back to them.

    I love both places. what surprised me as a student in Paris when I first saw Père LaChaise was that the French would go there on weekends and picnic amongst the graves! I made the requisite trip to Jim Morrison’s grave, of course. I went early in the morning figuring that there would be less crowds. Yes, the hordes of people were not there! Interestingly graves in Père Lachaise are bought on a thirty year lease. When the lease ran out, there was talk of removing him to the USA. but a new one in perpetuity was bought!!

    And the flea market. Oh many a weekend was spent there. I loved the Marché aux Puces. I bought my pea coat there,, I still have and wear it. I bought so many things there, Such fun, But yes, you. have to be in for it, and I doubt if some one has but a a few days in Paris they would want to go to the Marché aux Puces! I would however!’

      Great information, Ellyn, about Père Lachaise. Michelle wanted to know how the burial lease was done so I hope she sees this. She’s likely in a taxi to the airport right now! We picnicked once there in the early days amid many stares and assumed it was a gauche thing to do. Haven’t ever done it since.
