More views around the Left Bank, mostly on the Rue du Buci, a fun, lively place.
There is a little flower shop there that always has the most fabulous flowers. I doctored up the photo a little.
During the winter season, there are oysters and shrimp for sale at a stand on the street. I love shrimp. You know what I can’t find here?–cocktail sauce. I have to make my own which I discovered has horse radish in it so I bring some with me when I come from the States as I haven’t found a source here either.
This place sells ham that is cut right off of the legs which you can see sitting in the window, hoofs and all, but I like the rose on the window the best.
You can eat outside there too but it is a little nippy here right now. By the way, they have passed a law and smoking is not allowed anymore in restaurants. I am so happy. I had gotten used to it by necessity and I thought there would be a huge strike and upheaval here as smoking is such a huge part of eating and drinking in France but it seems to have happened very smoothly.
