    You and Bernie always seem to make the best of everything, including rainy days.

    Adore your ‘Purely Paris’ today! and always love your church photos.

    You may have this but FYI for next time you’re around rue Mouffetard … a favourite list (from always-reliable Heather Stimmler-Hall) of best artisanal patisseries. It includes Carl Marletti, just across the side street from Saint-Médard and recommended by several others as well. Both church and patisserie are on my list because on a recent visit, we happened to arrive there around 1:30pm on a Sunday and both were closed (patisserie Sunday hours, church for a couple hours in the p.m.). We enjoyed sitting in the church courtyard before continuing our walk up the hill 🙂

    À bientôt and hope all goes well with your visitors.

    Your pix made me nostalgic, Linda. There is a hotel just off Place Mouffetard on Rue Cardinal Lemoin where Ralph and I have stayed many times (Hotel des Grandes Ecoles), so I know that neighborhood well. Nice little hotel, fun neighborhood. Sigh. I’ve got to get back to Paris next year! I’m really enjoying reading your posts every morning.

    Your blog is my way of getting out each day. I’m loving it. The weather, the food, the history, the art, the strolls, the nestling.

    While in the rue Mouffetard area have you ever visited Arènes de Lutèce? (49 rue Monge). I think it is one of the most fascinating things in Paris, and most Parisians have never even heard of it. It’s a real Roman forum dating from the first century, hidden and buried until a metro was being worked on. I love to pick up lunch on rue Mouffetard and picnic like a Roman. 😉

      Oui, oui! We visited this spot many years ago and loved it! The idea of a picnic lunch is one we’ll remember!
