A few more photos taken about the Marais, another this and that, here and there theme.

I have to say one of the reasons I enjoy being back in Paris is that I never have to get in a car and drive someplace. I mostly take the metro, but also the bus. When in the bus, there may be heavy traffic or lots of stops at stop lights but I’m not as annoyed as I get when behind the wheel. Anyway, I took the metro to the Saint Paul metro stop as my photos showed in the last two blog postings. Here are a few more outside of the Village Saint Paul.

In the Marais district of Paris there is a section called Saint Paul Village, a little enclave of apartment buildings with some interesting shops on the ground floors. Lots of antique hunters check out what’s for sale there.

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.

It has been cold here in Paris since we returned and colder still the last two days which keeps me pretty much home bound but I have a few photos I’ve taken here and there.
I was in China Town in Paris-Belleville-to meet a friend for lunch and saw this photo in the window of a photographer. I took a photo because this bridge, and several others, have had the keys removed-the so called Love Locks-and are now replaced with clear glass so they look like they used to. I’m always reminded of my friend, Lisa, who started the movement to have them removed. I’m sure she knows.
