A Chilly Day in the Marais

We’ve had a cold front here in Europe and the high yesterday was 32 degrees. I’ve been sort of nesting in our apartment keeping warm but then getting cabin fever so I bundled up and set out getting off the metro at Saint Paul, the Marais area.These photos are all places and things I’ve taken before but they are newly taken. I’m proud I braved the cold for an hour or so, ending up in a warm coffee place for a hot drink.

An architectural detail (there are four) called a chimère (an ancient mythological creature) holding up a balcony.

Interesting grafitti.

One of those narrow streets that give you the Parisian “feel”.

I love this door.

Look at this ancient sculpture right across the street. It probably advertised a shoe maker. I’m glad they didn’t cover it up.
