Weekend in the Marais

Here are a few things I like about the Marais.

The "public poet" who sets up shop right by the Centre Pompidou.

The second-hand bookstore, "Archives de la Presse", on Rue des Archives, where one can pick up delightful history magazines from the 1950s, like those shown above, for only one Euro apiece, with the unassailable justification that one is doing so to improve one's French.

Farther down the rue des Archives, the Musee de la Chasse et de la Nature, evidemment!

The weekend market at the Bastille, including that delightful chocolatier's stall. (No, these are not for me; Operation Wise Food Choices is back in full force -- they are for the hardworking staff at the ACCORD School of Languages. If there should happen to be one or two left over, then tant mieux pour moi!)

The charming, though slightly puzzling, graffiti of the artist THTF.

The patisseries!
