As Savannah delights in a week of sun, join the many costumers who cool off with The Paris Market’s top-selling Frozen Hot Cocoa.
At the end of the metro line 4, Porte Clignancourt, through the stands of Asian-imported shoes and bags, cheap clothing, and a number of Rastafarian outlets selling varied scented incense, one will eventually get to the good stuff. The stuff that is worn down with age, the things that are slightly tattered, objects that once shined brand new, but now have a translucent layer of time on them.
Vintage Playing Cards, French books of Bridge-playing, and old champagne caps with vintage graphics are just a few things on their way to Savannah.
It has become one of my favorite areas in Paris, though I only give you a glimpse of it's charm, the Canal Saint-Martin is best experienced with warmer weather. When the temperature is comfortable, and the sun is gleaming through the city, I love strolling down the canal along the cobblestone. The crowd of people
picnic-ing are some of the most interesting to watch. With baguettes, assortment of cheeses, and a variety of different beverages sipped from plastic cups which accompany the "bo-bo" crowd I long to see the sight of Spring. Though there was some activity today along the canal, it was still incredibly evident that winter was still amongst us here is Paris.
Now for Savannah, might I bring up Isabelle's French Word of the Day, and emphasize her suggestion to "prendre un café à la terrasse du Paris Market"
I can just imagine the Savannah Spring season beginning to surface.
France is famous for their café culture. You would be hard pressed to pass a terrace (or sidewalk) café in Paris or Provence without noticing it's unique atmosphere. So today’s word is “Terrasse”, meaning, “Terrace” or sidewalk.

Smaller than Le Pere Lachaise, yet still a considerably size, Cimetiere du Montparnasse still holds it's own, like both Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir, and Serge Gainsbourg with his tombstone well-attended for. It's curious how time passes with such a sense of contentment while strolling through the rows and columns of those whom have passed. I honestly hadn't for a single moment thought, "how drab or how depressing" but instead I found my surrounding to be peaceful and intriguing. In fact, as morbid as this may sound to some, I came out with how I would design my headstone; it would be completely compiled with those lovely ceramic flowers that rest of some of the graves.
Anyway, walking through this little city of granite and marble was interesting and informative to keep it at that.
We recently had the opportunity to sit in Le Sélect Cafe with Rick Tulka. We people-watched and discussed his inspirations. I think somewhere in our minds we each wished that we had come up with what he thought of. Oh, the joy of people-watching.
All the dear ones who come to visit me can't get enough.
Nor can I.
I can eat a falafel at least three times a week.
That's just what we did.
Aside from the falafels, Le Marais is my favorite neighborhood to walk through. One can count the posts that feature Le Marais as proof.
Really I can't get enough.
