Walking in Cumbria and Beyond

Montmartre and Le Marais

Montmartre and Le Marais

Breakfast in Montmartre.

It was I remembered.

Though my paper blog from my 19th year also reminds me it was summer

with pictures of t-shirted youth sat on steps now filled with tourists muffled in layers

But artists joked and jostled in the square.

Colour splashed canvases depicting Paris in pictures.

.. and soldiers a stark reminder of the recent heinous distruction.



Wind whipped around Scare Coeur with seemingly endless Paris hinterland

as tourists took selfies unflustered by the sweep of machine guns.

Soldiers and selfies

Down through the undulating streets of Montmartre.

With pigeons breakfasting.

Then to the medieval lanes of Le Marais, where I had not been.

Beautiful buildings and cobblestone streets.

Streets of Le Maris

Le Marais

More tastefully tiny shops, selling tastefully stacked clothes and



food to salivate over.



Tucked in amongst is the Picasso museum with not only his art, but detritus of his life.


Picaso museum

And that was it.

Four days in Paris

I ate falafel and left.  The train to Charles de Gaulle was free, courtesy of the climate change conference

and within 4 hours I was back in the UK, if not quite home.

There is a lot you can do with four days in Paris

Read the rest. Day one, two, three
