    Lovely photos of a wonderful stroll through Paris! . I see you’ve finally discovered the charm of street art. The artist of your two lovers today also had (and may still have) may paintings up on top of Parc de Belleville. They are fascinating! You need to check it out if you haven’t already.

    What an easy strolling kind of day. It’s fun to come along and see your neighborhood finds. Buildings, doors, art, restaurants and people. I look forward to hearing about your lunch.

      We took you and Bob there. Do you remember? It’s where we bought the necklaces made with pieces of colored suede cloth.

    Oh the memories! Before our children married, we four spent wonderful Christmas holidays in an apartment very near rue Mouffetarde. If memory serves correctly, our Buche de Noel was purchased at the Patissier you shared. Thank you so much for allowing us to live vicariously through your writings and photos – what a special treat! Best to you both.

    What extraordinary photos in today’s post! The left bank is always tops when it comes to all things artistic – and full of surprises! Loved the painted buildings, the street art and the monument honoring James Joyce. PARIS has always been a magnet for the world’s most creative minds.

    Thanks to you and Bernie for treating us to sights most of us would never otherwise see – so enriching!

      Thanks to you and others for your comments. And yes, creative enlightenment is what Paris is about…thus the City of Light.
