The Marais is such a great area to explore. I think I’ve posted photos like these more than once but here they are again. Just some things that always catch my eye.
This carving has been preserved on a building that had the rest of it renovated. I’m glad they saved it. It once advertised a man who did knife sharpening. Why he is winking and holding a wine glass, I don’t know.
This toilet isn’t actually in the Marais but in a bistro in my neighborhood. I just thought it was very cheerful looking in its red and white tile. Notice that the toilet doesn’t have a seat. That’s very common in France. I think the French don’t think seats are sanitary and don’t sit anyway-sort of hover. I’m just glad to find a toilet and not one of those turkish toilets which is a hole in the floor.
