Back in Paris after our wonderful trip to Ireland. For three days I just hung out at the apartment, recovering. Being a tourist can be hard work. But I finally got out and went to my favourite place in Paris, Palais Royal and Passage Vivienne, a short distance away.
This is the back section of Palais Royal before you enter the gardens.
Passage Vivienne, so elegant, lost in time. These covered passages became a huge fad but slowly faded away with the coming of department stores.
A shop there selling absolutely stunning scarves.
Another look but at the roof this time.
A bookstore with Victor Hugo in the window.
