I feel more at home in the Marais, when in Paris, than anywhere else. After visiting Galerie Lafayette yesterday, to buy some boots, we exited the shop to utter chaos. It was heaving with people and traffic so off we went to The Marais.
That fabulous monument at The Bastille looks stunning in any light.
The tempting winding streets of this medieval area are full of little secrets.

Why not have a vintage bike in your restaurant window?
How's that for a logo?
A clock/cushion. I saved a fortune because this shop was shut.
Shoes and a bag decorated with rick rack.
Hooray for shopkeepers that never change their style.
Shops that let their art spill over onto the pavement.
A hairdressers with its own bar.
Curious name for a hairdresser but what fabulous flower arrangements in his window.
A holocaust memorial in the Jewish district.
Time to stop for food and drink. We often eat at this Jewish restaurant - Chez Marianne. I couldn't tell you what it is we eat but it's delicious. That's Marianne, when she was younger I may add.
