Familiar Arches


For those of you that have visited Paris a few times,  I'm sure you know exactly where this is.  Oui! Place des Vosges in the Marais. I spent a lot of time right here last summer as my little flat was just a few blocks away. There was usually a street musician playing. This day the harpist.

This is beautiful, in black and white and framed by the arch. A harp seems very much at home there.

Virginia, what i love is when you have stayed somewhere like this and it somehow becomes your place. - Can't wait till this happens --4 weeks till Paris actually 3 weeks and 6 days! x

Somehow this photo makes me wish I were a college exchange student in Paris! Lovely photo! Maybe one of our 3 daughters will study there someday....

The Place des Vosges is also one of my favourite spots in Paris! Breakfast at "Ma Bourgogne" is a must-do for every stay in Paris.

Vreni, I"ve not had breakfast at Ma Bourgogne, but many glasses of wine and a meal!:)

Nicely done, Virginia. One of these days I am going to rent a Parisian flat for a month or so . . .
