Ste Germain des Pres

I never really understood the fascination with St-Germain-des-Pres. Lots of students. So. Grand boulevards. So. Proximity to lots. So…..

Fast forward to today. On my way to the dentist in the 7eme arrondisement, fighting gale force winds, and horizontal rain, I walked down Rue du Bac and it finally became clear. Amazing boutiques. Design stores. Well dressed jeunes. Quaint cafes. Beautiful galleries. I must have been walking about with my eyes closed. It’s all going to change now. We still have a couple of pieces of furniture to procure to finish our relocation and tomorrow, I’ve decided, we’re going to wander in and out of all the fab shops in St Germain des Pres. I did a fair bit today, now I have to convince Michelle that it will be worthwhile to go instead of staying in and resting after her full-on two days in Strasbourg and Germany this week.

That is, before her big night out to see Pierre Lapointe. Oui, Vive le Québec, right here in Paris.
