Par la Fenêtre


In June I revisited Shakespeare & Co. I finally made my way to the back of the shop and up the stairs. Oh, it's a sight to behold. I will share more photographs with you, but today a charming view from the upstairs window. This if for my loyal reader Gary who requested some photos for his 5th grade students! I am always happy to honor reader requests when I possibly can.

It's nice to look out the window and be reminded of where you are. :)

You can't hide yourself in the cloak of anonymity! :)

Shell,
I think you're right!

JB (oh, Mr. Anonymous), tu es acidulé tout plein.

Virginia, love the Bard.

Oh, I am so going up those stairs next time! (And I think I'll stick with the barber—yikes!)

It that Mr. Whitman (or whatever his name was) who used to own it, in the video? When I was there in 1976, he used water from a vase of much-too-old flowers to cool off his soup. Yuck.
