Here and There in Paris

One morning I went for a walk, and it turned out to be a long one, to take a look at a few things. It was a beautiful day and it turned in to a hot one so, after lunch I went back home but I got a few photos.

I started at Bastille and took a look at the Arsenal where boats are docked being a bit curious after my interview with Cris Hammond who is planning to dock there for the winter.

Crossing the river I saw this huge barge with another along side it, empty and cruising back to be reloaded somewhere.

I ended up at the Austerlitz metro station, one that I really like the design of.

This was on the walls of the quai. They just don’t decorate metro stations like that anymore.

This huge structure is in a courtyard surrounded on all four sides by your typical Parisian buildings. I saw a link about it and thought I’d check it out. It’s just off of Place d’Italie and I roamed around where it was supposed to be before I finally found the entrance. They are still working on it so I didn’t go in. I wish I had gone to a hotel and asked it I could get a view from up above. I looked for information on this building and can’t find it right now no matter what I put into Google. All I can tell you is that it is off of Avenue des Gobelins. You can’t see it from any street but only through an old archway. Strange but interesting.

  1. From the old to the new. Those green ceramic decorative tiles are wonderful. And the new building . . . I’m still trying to figure it out!
