it has been almost an year since our (honeymoon) trip to paris last year (click here & here to see previous posts)… and i still haven’t finished sorting out pictures we took! bad.

so question for parisians: i guess there are no bad patisseries in paris? this one close by our hotel (at rue saint-basin & blvd beaumarchais) has really good pain au raisin (and sandwich, and chocolate croissant…and cheaper than philly’s!isn’t it weird.) we can’t pass without having one(min.) pain au raisin on hands.

our schedule today is pretty flexible. mainly to visit notre-dame,saint-chapelle, le louvre, and street wondering, basically.

love how the cars/motorcycles are sharing sidewalk with pedestrian. the scale of sidewalk is really nice- thanks to the perfect width and sycamore trees.

had our first breakfast at cafe francais ( rue saint-antonine & place de la bastille ).i know local people will tell me they’re not serving the best coffee, i agree. the pastries there were just okay (actually coffee was still darn good) – but great spot for people watching.

it’s paris, even police car is stylish.

really close by- and the line was WAY longer than notre-dame’s. no kidding. we waited for at least an hour in line- and passed a serious security gate- and bought the tickets, finally, got to see this beautiful chapel, under restoration…! alright actually it is really stunning i think all our waiting was still worthy.

we spent the rest of day in le louvre. it was my second time visiting the museum, first time for j, still so much to see…

it’s not surprising when we got out of the museum, it was dark already…

next is one of our favorites “place des vosges”. this galleries area we passed by almost every night- is on the way back to hotel. “maison de victor hugo” is at the other corner. it was the first time i am introduced to denis fremond‘s art works. very romantic & dreamy style… check out sibman gallery‘s website for more exhibition information.
