We have been having some wonderful sunny days in Paris and it was in evidence on my last time up at Montmartre.

Sitting in the sun in front of a cafe-so common here. I rarely do this as I sunburn easily, don’t like to get hot and sweaty, and, most of all, there are usually smokers outside.

Take a look at these stairs, very common in Montmartre. They almost look like a ladder. You have to be in good shape to live here.

This is a good place for tea, hot chocolate or lunch. I always meet Americans when I go here. Usually they are expats like me and they always strike up a conversation, something not many French people will do unless you are a pretty girl with a Frenchman at the next table.

I often see the street cleaners just standing around. I know they work but I have many photos of them relaxing.
