Notre Dame was on yesterday's blog and this next image shows you the amazing walk-way at the top of the Cathedral. Would love to do this walk, next time we are in Paris, it must have a wonderful view of the surrounding area.
This is a familiar sight in and around Paris..Romanian beggars and believe me, they are VERY aggressive! Be warned when visiting!
As we were walking down a small side street, l happened to look up and see this very colourful window. It belonged to a cafe and this was their kitchen window, where they kept their spices and lentils. If l hadn't looked up, l would have missed it, as l am only 5ft 2inchs tall and this window was at least 6ft off the pavement!! All l can say is, the chef must have been very tall to reach those jars!!
We had been told by our daughter Jenny, that we had to go and visit this shop called Shakespeare and Company. It is owned by a guy who is l think is around 91 years of ages and he lives above the shop. It is open from 12 pm till 12 am every day of the year, including Christmas Day! He allows aspiring writers to sleep and work on the premises free and they give some of their time for free. It is just overflowing with books and atmosphere!
A small part of the shop, it is all nooks and crannies, many flights of stairs and a piano!
