Here and There in Paris

Those famous tin roofs of Paris.

There are some very cute signs on the side of this Paris restaurant called Maceo. It’s behind the Palais Royal.

A rainy day in the park at Palais Royal. The flowers are still going strong.

This is a really nice hotel in the Left Bank. They always have flowers growing in each window.

I love the window of this bookstore which specializes in books by Jules Verne with the original leather covers. I went in to look around and felt less than welcomed by the owner. I guess he thought I wasn’t going to buy anything so didn’t extend any curtesy towards me. Needless to say, I didn’t buy anything.

  1. Ahhh, Paris! Such lovely scenes.

    I wonder how large the market is for Jules Verne books with the original leather covers? Not that I wouldn’t love to have one.

  2. Those famous roofs are one of the things that made my kids realize we were in France. I’ll never forget getting off the train, walking into the street and 6-year-old Grace saying, “Mama, we’re in France. Just like in Aristocats.” (the Disney movie)
    Thanks for playing along today and for the great photos of Paris. You should visit Nantes, the original home of Jules Verne. I bet they have plenty of leather-bound books plus nice shop keepers.

  3. I love how there can be a bookstore specialising in leather bound Jules Vernes! Even if the shopkeeper is snooty. The rooves of Paris are glorious and make my heart happy.

  4. Some shop owners are just not “commercant” Meaning they just don’t care about sales. It’s a real puzzle in Paris to run across one of these types. Why are they in business at all?
